Christ Church Steeple Dismantled

By Lisa M. Collins

The Christ Church steeple, some 177 years old, is getting dismantled brick by brick after lightening struck back in July. The lightening strike destabilize the steeple and the scaffolding around it, and falling scaffolding killed a man walking home. 

The process should take a few months and ads to the “construction site” feeling around PS 29 Elementary School on Henry between Kane and Baltic. That school is under construction for the remainder of this year to fix a leaky roof and remove asbestos caulking around the windows — a project that sparked protest by parents at the end of the last school year.

PS 29 also has a new principal this year. Here’s wishing the school a smooth, happy year after weathering some bumps of late.
