Episcopal Church Demolished To Construct Condominiums

A century-old church in Glendale was demolished last Thursday, after being sold by the Episcopal Diocese to a pawnshop owner for more than a million dollars.
Community leaders and politicians tried to save the Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, at 71-05 Cooper Avenue, by having the city designate it as a landmark. They say they were unsuccessful because the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island wanted free rein to sell the building to developers.
