Christ Church New Brighton

Staten Island

Why is this building significant?

Built of granite trimmed with limestone and cast stone, this Victorian-era church was modeled on a typical English parish church of the late Gothic period. A crossing tower dominates the cruciform church, which includes porches and buttresses, as well as opalescent windows manufactured by Tiffany Studios. The church is connected by means of a cloister to a Tudor-style rectory.


What did the New York Landmarks Conservancy do?

We provided grants totaling $41,000 for restoring stained-glass windows, designing drainage improvements, and planning and implementing a $350,000 tower restoration project.
