Bishop Ford Central Catholic High School may have closed earlier this year, but the presence of Francis Xavier Ford, Sinophile and martyr of the Catholic Church, endures. His mosaic likeness welcomes the multitudes of designers and consultants who cross his doorstep. And if, in the saving of his sprawling edifice, we are ground underfoot and spat upon and worn out, we shall have become the Prospect Expressway (which, unlike the Kings Highway, is actually nearby) for every child in pathless Brooklyn.
