To the editor,
I no longer live in BPC and am not a religious person, but when I watched Willie Geist’s story Sunday morning about St. Joseph’s Chapel I was appalled.
This little space is as important in remembering 911 as the Memorial across the street.
I used to walk our dogs by it quite often and enjoyed meeting and talking with some of the folks coming and going from the chapel.
It’s a necessary part of the community. Surely one of the wealthy landlords can do better than this.
