Church Manhattan Upper West Side

The remarkably intact trio of buildings belonging to St. Michael’s Protestant Episcopal Church is located on the northwest corner of West 99th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. The complexly massed church with campanile anchors the site on the east with the parish house and rectory surrounding a courtyard on the north and west facing West 99th Street.

The public facades of the three buildings are faced with rough-faced Indiana limestone and tan brick with stone and clay-tile detailing; the less visible articulated facades, including the west facades of the west transept, parish house and northwest façade of the church, are executed in red brick. The roofs of the church and the rectory have been re-clad with clay tiles; the roof of the parish house is clad with non-historic asphalt shingles. The complex is enclosed by wrought iron fences and gates, some of which may be historic.

“I don’t know what the City would be without HDC. [They] testified before LPC time after time and helped us focus on the right issues. We would not be an historic district without HDC! ”

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
