The lady in the window

lady in the window Church of Holy Innocents building

We were walking by the Church of the Holy Innocents on Friday when this figure in the boarded-up window of one of the buildings behind the old church caught our eye. The expression on her face is like she's trying to not let you know how she really feels.

By the way: AOA has an Instagram account, where we post this sort of stuff.

You know if I ever hit the lottery, restoring this church would be job one.

Literally a crime that Hope House bought it and neglected it for the last 30 years. Architecturally significant by an important architect, historic stained glass windows, and now it is collapsing. (like St. John's in the south end) ugh

The church has a very sad history:

It's such a shame to see it sitting there rotting.
