The Committee to Save St. Brigid's has an URGENT call for help on their website. They are seeking landmark status for the Lower East Side Famine Church, built in 1848 by Irish shipbuilders fleeing the ravages of famine in Ireland. To this task, they ask us to send a request for evaluation by fax to the New York City Landmarks Commission, attention: Mary Beth Betts, Director of Research, (212)669-7960.
The form can be found on their website at: http://www.savestbrigid.com/www/documents/stbrigiddoc2.pdf
