Home to some of the city's oldest trees, Mt. Manresa's majestic campus, a refuge for exhausted relief workers in the aftermath of of 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy, is dotted with historic brick buildings.
Without notice to the community, the Jesuit order entered into a $15 million contract this year to sell this pristine rural retreat, zoned for high-density residential use, to a Staten Island mall developer.
Staten Islanders have rallied to fight for Mt. Manresa, seeking to re-purpose the retreat as public parkland.
