According to a series of posts on Instagram, New York City's Johnson Trading Gallery, owner of Woods Cathedral, has begun a cleanup and rehab of the site with the goal of making it into gallery space and art studios. As we reported last year, the nearly 100-year-old building, originally a Catholic church and later a cathedral in the Church of God in Christ (COGIC), was sold at county tax auction in 2014 for $6700. We'll have more on this story in the coming days, but for now, here's a picture of the building with its brand new roof, courtesy of the gallery's Instagram account.
