About the Event

The New York Landmarks Conservancy is very pleased to offer its Professional Circle members an exclusive tour with Acheson Doyle Partners of the former Jan Hus Presbyterian Church and Neighborhood House.

Date and time

Church of the Epiphany

351 E 74th St 351 East 74th Street New York, NY 10021

The Jan Hus Presbyterian Church was built in 1888 by noted architect R. H. Robertson and expanded in 1915 with the adjacent Neighborhood House by Ludlow & Peabody to serve the broader needs of the Czech community. The Church design evokes the streetscape of Prague with its distinctive Romanesque and Gothic Revival details, including a tower, said to recall the entrance to Charles Bridge, which was added in 1915 as part of the expansion.

Upon purchasing the former Jan Hus Presbyterian Church and Neighborhood House, the Church of the Epiphany partnered with Acheson Doyle Partners Architects for a comprehensive historic restoration and renovation project. This historic adaptive reuse effort included a complete interior renovation accommodating a mixed-use church, office, industrial kitchen, school, gymnasium, and accessible roof program.

The Sanctuary renovation features a new organ and stained glass windows; integration of existing liturgical fixtures into the space; introduction of a new HVAC system and Landmarks Preservation Commission-approved exterior repairs and restoration.
