From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: The present neo-Gothic edifice, located on Barbey Street near Arlington Avenue, was dedicated on April 15, 1908. On the ground floor are rooms for the Sunday-school, and on the floor above is the church. In 1928, the Austin Organ Company installed a new three-manual organ in a chamber at the left side of the chancel.
