Demolition Finally Begins on Former St. Mary's School Property
After much delay, demolition finally began late last month on Cathedral Avenue, between Fourth and Fifth Streets, on the property formerly known as St. Mary's. The Konner Development Corporation of Bridgehampton bought the land from The Cathedral of the Incarnation for an undisclosed amount of money this past summer. Eight new "traditional Garden City homes" will replace the longtime vacant school for girls, a building that had become somewhat of an eyesore in the village.
