The old neighborhood was the first to go; bulldozed in the 1950s and 1960s to make way for the Cabrini-Green public housing development. Four decades later, most of Cabrini is gone--pushed aside for yet another a new community. The church has been closed since 1990. It hasn't fallen, but it sits. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese still owns the building and keeps it up rather well.
