St. John the Baptist, Lewis Avenue

I have yet to walk around the block where St. John's University and St. John's Prep began along Lewis Avenue. In today's New York Post this article appeared, stating that a charter school, New Beginnings, will take over the space now occupied by the parish elementary school at 82 Lewis Avenue. It seems that the neighboring parish of Our Lady of Good Counsel on Putnam Avenue has already been merged into the parish of St. John the Baptist, one pastor covering worship at both churches. Two parish offices remain. Corrections and explanations are welcome.
The website of the two parishes is linked here. The rectory address is 75 Lewis Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11206, telephone 718-443-7211.
