The interior of St. Gabriel’s church, which closed in July 2007, is in tough shape, based on these photos. There appears to be a lot of water damage. The property had been owned by St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, but I am not sure if the sale of the hospital to the for-profit Steward Healthcare System included the church, monastery and long-closed school.
Chloe, who disappeared from Ringer Park back in February, was re-united with her owner about a week later. A woman from Brookline was able to take custody of the lost canine and contact the owner. I have been meaning to post this happy ending for a while, thanks to Abigail Furey for the update.
The owner of 60-62 Dunboy Street will be up before the Board of Appeal on April 10 to legalize the expansion of living space into the basement. This request is also going to be discussed Thursday at the BAIA. This is how the house looked before construction:

Obviously a bit more was going on than just adding some basement living space, but the work is complete and it is pretty much a moot question. There was a “For Sale” sign in front, but that is now gone and the units may be on the rental market.
