Plans for Church as Party Space Turn Awry

The New York Sun reported today that the Rose Group has encountered some neighborhood opposition to its plans to rent out the Third Church of Christ Scientist for events. (That's the company owned by Herbert Rose and sons John and Louis, of course, which previously managed Cipriani 42nd Street and Capitale and currently operates the newly revamped Guastavino’s.) The space hosted a J.C. Penney event in January, but it seems that Community Board 8 on the Upper East Side is not so keen on the noise, traffic, and security problems events might bring and is looking to revoke the liquor license and Department of Buildings permit.
