Worker injured at Bay Ridge `Green Church' site

A construction worker is taken in a stretcher after he fell off a 6-foot ladder at a building site for a new school at Ovington Avenue and 70th Street, Bay Ridge. The site was the location of the historic 19th century “Green Church,” or Bay Ridge United Methodist Church, which was demolished in 2008 when the congregation no longer had the money to keep up the crumbling structure. The school is slated to incorporate several elements of the church. As for the worker, he was taken to Lutheran Medical Center but was reported to be in stable condition. Eagle photo by John Calabrese
