Photo by myself at the steps of St. Stanislaus, on East 7th Street and First Avenue.
A small shrine for the late president Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria, on the steps of St. Stanislaus in the East Village. The President, his wife and many other high officials perished in a tragic plane crash last week.
St. Stanislaus is a Roman Catholic church that conducts its masses in Polish. The Polish community has long populated the East Village as well as Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
