A Tour of St. Brigid’s Church in the East Village
Join architect Mick Doyle of Acheson Doyle Partners Architects for a behind-the-scenes tour of this historic church that was saved from the wrecking ball and restored to the great delight of its parishioners and the surrounding community. Mr. Doyle will share his experience as an integral part of this successful example of historic preservation, and will be joined by representatives from the church and the restoration contractor.
St. Brigid’s was built in 1848 and served a diverse working-class immigrant population until 2001, when it was closed due to structural problems. In 2006 demolition began, but an anonymous $20 million gift in 2008 led to the restoration we see today.
