Hobokenpix: Trinity Church

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 2/10/2009

The All Saints Parish (Trinity Church) on 7th and Washington Streets is a beautiful building.

Most of the year, it’s shrouded by giant trees, and hard to get a decent photo of. With a crisp blue sky and bare branches, I took the opportunity to capture the property as best as I could this week.

And for the record, you excerpted previous posts incorrectly.

Check the transcripts from the ZBA hearings for Holy Innocents. But I imagine you were at those meetings, anyway, so heard the testimony. Perhaps you might want to refresh what seems like your selective memory….

No one is maligning the good works All Saints has accomplished. There are many.

Re: 49, I couldn’t disagree more with your notion that a church is not a business.
