Apparently there’s a monastery at 3107 Bailey Avenue in the Bronx. Anyone have any idea which jurisdiction it belongs to?

Slavic cross above the doors of Greek monastery? Something suspicious...

It's not a part of GOARCH or ROCOR (according to their directories), that's all I know

There is no such thing as a ‘Slavic Cross’. The 3-bar cross typical of Russian usage is medieval Byzantine, just as the Star-Crescent is not Turkish or even original to Islam but is the symbol of the ancient city of Byzantium.

It was a joke, the whole sentence. Welcome to the oc.net ;)
