Database Manager on December 27, 2019:

From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: Original specifications in the archives of the Tellers Organ Company (successor to A.B. Felgemaker) indicate that this three-manual Felgemaker organ was shipped on November 21, 1899, and was setup by Henry Tellers and Scultetus. The organ weighed 10,500 pounds, the iron was an additional 800 pounds, and the frieght cost was $49.09. In 1930, the organ was moved to Crawford Memorial Methodist in the Bronx, where it was rebuilt and electrified by Clark & Fenton.
