  1. Another church going down.

  2. I’m ok with it. David you still have room.

  3. The building will be built on the vacant lot adjacent to the church. The church will not be demolished.

      Thank you. Google Maps, no surprise, is effed. I remember when it wasn’t a sea of sponsored businesses.
      Sharon Baptist Church is 837 Forest Ave.

    • Guess the church sold their excess property? Well someone was sitting on the land..

  4. Thanks for clearing that up. When they mentioned demolition permits for a empty lot?

  5. So many churches are being converted to residential space with churches in them.

  6. The Baptist church at 827 Forest Ave, next to the development lot, was originally built in 1912 as a synagogue: Beth Hamedrosh Hagodal Adath Israel.

  7. Intrested,when ready,need 1bedroom apartment,please,may I get an application??
