Checking in on St. Brigid’s

Filing almost 3,000 words for The Villager about the restoration of St. Brigid’s, Roland Legiardi-Laura opines on the good (wonderful new stained-glass windows, a beautiful copper batten-seam roof), the bad (picketing electrical workers, the loss of a cast-iron fence, the lack of two steeples that came off of the church in the 1960s), and the ugly: dirty windows, a “bargain basement redo” of the rectory’s exterior, a “hulking industrial” back wall, and a poorly colored cornice.
