St Thomas the Apostle New York

I was kindly e-mailed with the following information.

The upcoming NYC Landmarks Committee hearing, which will include a discussion regarding landmarking certain Harlem churches, is scheduled for Tuesday, September 21st at 10:00 A.M. in the Municipal Building at 1 Centre Street, 9th Floor.

Rep. Charles Rangel has it on his schedule and although his office has not confirmed that he will be in attendance, Rangel will probably be there. City Council member Bill Perkins will there, Harlem Preservation Foundation members and members of the NY Landmarks Conservancy and other coneservationists, and of course St. Thomas Parishioners will all be there.

They intend to demand that Landmarks Commissioner Robert Tierney protect St.
Thomas the Apostle Church from being destroyed by the NY Archdiocese by
declaring it a NYC Landmark.
