Officers from the day tour of the Critical Incident Unit of the New Rochelle Police Department are expected to spend the next days clearing out materials from a “training house” which was previously built inside the Church.
After the deal was announced with Mariano Rivera, the Yankees Hall of Fame pitcher, DPW workers began clearing out the building. The work was halted over concerns of asbestos in the building. City Manager Chuck Strome confirmed today to Talk of the Sound that there was asbestos in the church and that it was removed. Asked why the City was doing the work instead of the new tenants. Strome said “We agreed to clear all debris from building.”
