SHEEPSHEAD BAY - The iconic church steeples that adorn the Korean United Methodist Church are to be torn down after they were deemed a safety hazard.

Reverend Jay Kim says the steeples are leaning and could pose a serious hazard.

The church says it doesn't have the finances to fix the steeples and that their removal is better than losing their house of worship entirely.
