Well that's a beautiful

Well that's a beautiful building - they don't make them like that anymore. I hope they don't demolish it. Whatever takes its place will be inferior.

Somerville has two churches-turned-condos

both on Bow Street in Union Square. Or three, if you count the one on Cross Street that also served in between as a movie theatre and a plumbing supply warehouse.

Tear it down

Let's get rid of another historic building and put up some boxy luxury condos that aren't worth the prices naive buyers pay. Not everyone can live in Southie but we can try.

Umm... Isn't what an unrelated, uncoerced party is willing to pay for something, pretty much exactly the definition of what something is "worth"?
