Finally, the Sisters showed mercy

The Sisters of Mercy bowed to loud public backlash — and lived up to their name — by backing down on the early eviction of the Narrows Senior Center from the Angel Guardian home. The nuns, who sold the sprawling former orphanage in Dyker Heights, gave up their plan to evict the seniors months before the end of their lease after the oldsters rallied with local pols to protest their imminent ouster. The nuns will now allow the senior center to stay in the building until June 4 — when its lease ends. Comment
