St. Andrew’s Church


Why is this building significant?

This picturesque Victorian Gothic Revival church is built of rock-faced granite and has a steeply pitched slate roof and a distinctive clock tower, both of which add a grace note to the neighborhood. Heavy buttresses lend a strong sense of solidity to the design. A pointed arch entrance is housed within its own gable. Its esteemed architect, Henry M. Congdon, specialized in the design of Episcopal churches across the country.


What did the New York Landmarks Conservancy do?

Working with the church for several years, we provided $55,000 and directed $189,000 in Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone funding towards restoring the polychrome slate roof, helping to secure state grant funding for the project.  We gave a $50,000 grant for area and entrance stair repairs to facilitate an accessible entrance.
