    This was quite a moving Report - thank you, Miss Amanda! - but do we know why the Chapel was vacated in 2018?

    I'd hazard a guess that perhaps it had to do with *moving on* from the events of 9/11...
  • This article is instructive. The rent was increased several hundredfold, there was considerable residential turnover in the neighborhood, and a 9/11 memorial had been set up elsewhere, of which St. Joseph's is now a part.

    Thank you, Miss Amanda.

    I surmised that some *moving on* had occurred, the chapel having (in a way) served its purpose well.
