St. Bart's is a gorgeous, stately church. It has lovely design elements (paintings on ceilings, stained glass, etc.), a welcoming atmosphere, and a solid music program. Despite being right in the middle of the city, there is a strong sense of community and mutual support among the clergy, musicians, and parishioners.
This historic church began in lower Manhatten in 1835 but moved serveral times before being constructed in 1917 at it's current location on Park Ave and 50 St, next door to the iconic Waldorf Astoria. A NYC Landmark build by Bertram Goodhue in the Ronaesque Byzantine style, with the entire entrance on Park Ave brought from the former church building... 更多
Right across the street from the Waldorf Astoria, this magnificent building is quietly taking care of the Lord's business helping the needy. If you are seeking a respite from your busy day to refocus on what really matters, this is the place for you. It is open for prayer and meditation; to buy a candle to light for prayer concerns;... 更多
The grounds of St. Bart’s are full of beautiful treasures of sacred art; unique architectural history and beautiful music, mosaics in 24-karat gold created by Hildreth Meiere, carvings, stained glass, and other accomplished works ... never fail to impress and educate me.

They offer music throughout the year as well as tours of the church. The interior of the church is quite beautiful as well as the entry... 更多
It's a byzantine style, which is pretty rare for this side of the Atlantic. It's pretty dark inside, but there's a great rose window, and has an unusual mix of byzantine and Art Deco architecture.
I cannot share enough superlatives about St. Bartholomew's. It is physically and spiritually beautiful. The architecture is Byzantine and spectacular. The music is world class. The preaching is intellectual, thought provoking, relevant and inspirational. We welcome everyone who comes as Christ. The church has a homeless shelter for women, food pantry and soup kitchen. I love St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church... 更多
Home of one of the wealthiest congregations, this Neo-Bysantine Episcopalian church is the third one, following the first one, 1835 in Downtown, 1872 Madison &24th and finally, this one, completed in 1930 at a cost of $5.4 million. So much for Depression times. The land was donated by the oldest son of Cornelius “Commodore” Vanderbuilt. The current church incorporates the... 更多
