Everything inside this Brooklyn Church is for sale

By Eva Kahn
The Episcopal church was completed around 1870.
NEW YORK---On a recent Saturday morning, dust choked the air, and debris rained inside the Church of the Redeemer in Brooklyn, just south of the Atlantic Terminal transit hub. Last year, the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island sold the property for $20 million, and the church is scheduled for demolition. Prices for the salvaged goods will range from a few hundred dollars each for batches of tiles to the about $10,000 for stone doorways and stained-glass portraits of saints. [link]
