  • Way to go!

  • Enjoyed this article. Love what you are doing and the fact that it's getting noticed.

  • Jodi, You were a cool group of students.

  • This article reminds me of what I loved about being one of your the same time you're teaching, it's clear you're still on a life-long personal journey of knowledge. It's still inspiring after so many years. 🙂

  • Congratulations!!!

  • CONGRADULATIONS!!! Great work! Wonderful recognition.

  • It's always great to hear what you are doing. Keep up the good work!

  • We are thankful that our Journey to your church encouraged you to start a legal aid clinic in Brooklyn's poorest and most crime ridden area. Thank you for letting us know!

  • Just saw the article in the NY Times. It was great. Just letting you know that we are praying to start a faith-based legal aid service in the Fall. Thanks for helping direct us to that poor and troubled area in Brooklyn.

  • Congratulations on the great NYT article on Friday. I was excited to hear about your project and even more excited about the possibilities that could develop from the data you have collected.

    One of my major research interests is the ways which congregations shape each other and secular society, socially and politically, within neighborhoods and across denominational and faith boundaries.

    I would very much like an opportunity to meet and am interested in working in your project.

  • Great article. via twitter

  • Oh me! A wise expert told us we should be more busy on the front page, with which we tended to agree. So, we made the front page slightly more busy. We are looking into producing lists by community district with an interactive component to allow community input. Thanks for the observations!

  • Dear Editor,

    I was excited to find your website but I find it somewhat difficult to navigate. There is too much happening on the page. First and foremost I would like to see an interactive list of all religious organizations/houses of worship - how many synagogues / churches/mosques etc in the city? etc etc. But your project is fascinating and I wish you success!

  • You have taken up an interest in an important aspect of our city's life: affordable space for religious and community groups.

  • I think the work you are doing is interesting - I am especially interested in the dynamics of how churches, synagogues and storefronts are used and reused in the city: as the populations change so do the uses to which these spaces are put.

  • We will be featuring Haitians and their faiths in the next couple of feature articles. Thank you for your terrific input!
