With the celebration of the church's 150th birthday, the Municipal Art
Society added the church to its list of seven New York Landmarks that are of
"national importance." The restoration of the church was begun in 1995 and is
costing nearly three million dollars. Over one million of which was donated by the
parishioners. The focus of the restoration is the crumbling marble exterior and the
protection and restoration of the beautiful stained glass art it the windows.
