The eight four-story apartment houses which occupied a corner of the Christian Science Church park, and which have stood there for more than two generations, have now been demolished. Reference to this change in the Church park property was made in this column in the Sentinel of December 10, 1932.
The removal of the buildings opens up a view of The Mother Church edifices that is available for a distance of about seven hundred and fifty feet on Huntington Avenue, which is a main thoroughfare. In the background is seen the new Publishing House, and in the foreground the park, which in the not distant future will put on a mantle of green, dotted here and there by flowers. In the Boston post of February 10, in its contributors' column, appeared the following letter:
"Great credit is due the Christian Science Church for the expensive and public-spirited removal of the structures obscuring the view of their edifice from Huntington Avenue. Too few organizations owning and erecting beautiful structures in this country today give any thought to permitting the world at large to get a glimpse of the structures as a whole. Very frequently an organization like the Christian Science Church gives this some thought, and, rather than have a building hidden, will sacrifice revenue-producing property to give the ordinary pedestrian a chance to see the whole thing. Often the only way to get any idea of what a completed structure looks like is to see the architect's sketch. In this same sense the builders of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York showed considerable foresight in selecting Morningside Heights."
