The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine is planning to build two 15-story apartment buildings, consisting of approximately 400 units, along the north side of the Cathedral on 113th Street at Amsterdam Avenue. This project will have a dramatically adverse effect on the Cathedral and the neighborhood.
This enormous development will cast in shadow most of the historic and magnificent church. It will also impair emergency services at the adjacent St. Luke’s Hospital, congest traffic, harm air quality and disrupt the character of the neighborhood. In light of these severe effects, the Friends of Saint John the Divine are organizing to prevent this development. We are calling upon City and State agencies to require a full analysis of the impact of the development on the Cathedral and the community. A second petition appeals to the Episcopal Diocese and the Cathedral to abandon the project.
Please take a moment to sign our online petition to the Episcopal Diocese.
