As the earliest example of Gothic Architecture in New York City, The Grace Church of
New York provides a stunning introductory example. Designed by the then unproven young
architect, James Renwick Jr., just 24 years old, it served as the beginning of his highly
successful career. The church has stood for over 150 years, undergoing several additions
as its congregation grew, and is currently undergoing a renovation that will restore the
church to its full beauty.
