The old church buildings are magnificent ! Construction today does not meet those standards. I am thankful that someone has bought it with a genuine purpose in mind. I hope it works out for the best........those stained glass windows are no doubt irreplaceable along with many other things in the church. You cannot put a price on beauty :)

I hope they save a lot of the old architectual artifacts like the front doors and other items that could be reused. Any way, to salvage the facade and build a new inside? Might save some money in cost?
Just a thought......my mom went there and there are many memories for many residents in that school.......Please save what you can or at least reuse it......maybe you can sell bricks for souvenirs.

I am so glad they will be trying to save the facades. They are just so beautiful, I cannot imagine having to tear them down. Best of luck :)

As I understand it, Mr. Kirk Douglas did not have very flattering things to say about Amsterdam in his book. Many local residents therefore have taken a dislike to him. Just saying :)

Great idea Jackie.....good luck with the project. I also like the idea of bringing in someone from another area that does not know us and will be able to look at things with a clean slate :)

We had the same issue in Amsterdam and the police department was against if for the same reasons. The signs were not put up. I agree the problem is the younger drivers who squeal tires and speed and have no respect, or little, for others. The best solution is more patrols.

Johnstown had a drum and bugle corps in the late 30's and early 40's. The American Legion post (472 as I recall) was our sponsor. Major Dorn was the leader (retired
wwI). We were from the high school(j"town)

Obviously the increased number of officers is having an impact in the city. Keep up the good work :)
