A Miracle On 86th Street?

Some Bensonhurst residents say that a statue of Saint Anthony is watching over the neighborhood.

Resident Cal Stansu placed the icon outside of his mother’s home after his father Anthony passed away 10 years ago. Now, neighbors say they can feel a heartbeat when they touch the statue.

Locals have been coming over to feel the statue and place flowers at its feet.

“Believe in miracles, and it will come true one way or another,” said Stansu.

This is certainly much more promising than an image of Jesus on a piece of toast.
