High on the list of New York’s wealthiest and most fashionable churches, this building was built on the original site of a brewery that had been turning out beer here for nearly sixty years. It replaces the parish’s former church on Madison Avenue at 44th Street, and the entrance portal, designed by Stanford White with sculptures by Daniel Chester French and Philip Martiny, was reinstalled here on Park Avenue. In the 1980s, the church proposed replacing its adjacent parish house with an office tower, but after a long court battle, a decision by the United States Supreme Court saved the beautiful low-rise building.
