Comments: As an architect I find the Church in question an eye sore to the neighborhood. There is more historic significance, and definitely more eye pleasing histroric significance in the architecture of many homes surrounding the Cabrini Seaton property. The economic development of the neighborhood by the presence of Holy Cross wouid do more justice to the historic architecture of these homes, since they would revitalize quicker and more robustly. FEMA's questionable call on this is an inhibitor to the much needed revitalization process. If FEMA is truly interested in revitalization of historic properties they should keep this in presepective. I do, however, feel that the school should salvage the tall cross on that site and build around it.
