There was once the most beautiful little church on Avenue C between East Fourth and East Third street. It used to be where those townhouses are now, on the North side of Avenue C. Let me tell you this church was something right out of small town USA. It was this little dark wooden church that had a wonderful large grass lawn around it bordering East Fourth. Someone recently wrote about a "Strawberry Festival" they used to have there every year. It was kind of our own little Prospect Park right up the block.
It was just so pleasant to walk home from PS 179 and smell freshly cut grass once and a while. When you looked at that church and the grounds around it you felt like you where in some small town in the Catskills. Well, tragically the thing burnt down sometime in the 70's and in it's place they built those townhouses.
I am asking anyone if they have any pictures of that church to please send them to me. I would love to post them on the blog.
One reader wrote once that her dreams of getting married in that church died the day it burnt down. Yeah, what a sad day when that church burnt to the ground, what a sad day indeed.
