From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: The J.H. & C.S. Odell company was selected to build the original organ for the new St. Paul's Methodist Church. Odell provided two identical facades at the front of the sanctuary, one at each side of the choir gallery, behind which were the organ chambers. Rebuilt in 1938 by William W. Laws Co. with a new Austin console.
