Marie DeLany rids her sidewalk of drug dealers with Christian music

Ronnie Polanecsky tells the story of how Overington House’s Marie Delany rid her street corner of drug dealers by playing Christian music in today’s Daily News:

Old-time standards like “Amazing Grace,” “The Old Rugged Cross,” “Nothing But the Blood of Jesus” and “The Lord’s Prayer.” You name the sacred song, it wafted three doors down to the intersection of Penn and Arrott streets, where dealers sold to addicts who stumbled up from the Arrott bus terminal.

Good times.
