New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Church of the Transﬁguration
New York City Designated Landmark
The English Lutheran Congregation built this charming and unpretentious church in 1801 from the same rubble masonry as St. Paulís Chapel. It is Georgian in style, with the steeply pitched end gables, rich entablature and quoins, and rectangular plan with the tower set forward. The etched window heads, however, are reminiscent of English Gothic parish churches. In 1853, the Roman Catholic Church of the Transfiguration brought the church, at which time it was remodeled and the bell tower replaced.
