Our Lady of the Presentation, Bedford-Stuyvesant

Our Lady of Presentation - Our Lady of Mercy parish has a Facebook page linked HERE, as of August, 2016.  Its office address given by the diocese is 680 Mother Gaston Boulevard, Brooklyn NY 11212, at Our Lady of Mercy Church, telephone 718-345-2604. However, Our Lady of the Presentation church is also listed as 1677 St. Mark's Avenue.  
A photo of Our Lady of the Presentation church is on Flickr, linked here.  It is an imposing structure on the north side of Eastern Parkway where Rockaway Avenue and St. Marks Avenue also meet.  
Thanks to a correspondent wrote this explanation: 
"Actually Our Lady of the Presentation Church is in Bedford-Stuyvesant via zip code 11233. Brownsville's zip code is 11212. East New York's zip code is 11208. Historically though, the boundary of Brownsville had started at Eastern Parkway (the church is on the corner of St. Marks Avenue and Eastern Parkway). Now the northern boundary of Brownsville starts at East New York Avenue to coordinate with its 11212 zip code." 
Effective 6.30.2011, a new parish was created, named Our Lady of the Presentation - Our Lady of Mercy.    
Nearby Our Lady of Loreto parish was closed.
