Overview

Built in 1918, this large and beautiful Episcopal church is distinguished by its Byzantine architecture. The building was designed by Bertram Goodhue and contains a portal (moved from an earlier building) by Stanford White. Because it sits on some of the city's most valuable real estate, St. Bartholomew's struggled against developers for years, and finally became a test case for New York City's landmark preservation law. Today, it is home to a thriving congregation and sponsors many community outreach programs. The popular Cafe St. Bart's is run by the church.
