The original Grace Episcopal Church was built as the neighbor to
Trinity Church downtown.
forced to vacate its site and move uptown, the church chose a site on
Broadway at a point where
the street curves westward, making the new church visable from its former
location. Built in white stone, the commission established the career of
architect James Renwick, Jr. The religious complex was expanded in the
20th century and now includes a school adjacent to the church. |
