Built in 1848 and designed by Patrick Keely, St. Brigid’s Church is among the oldest Gothic Revival churches in New York City. The Archdiocese of New York closed the parish in 2001 due to the severe deterioration of the structure. The church sat vacant until 2008 when an anonymous donor provided funds to restore the church. SGH performed a condition assessment of the structure and developed a rehabilitation program, allowing the church to be reoccupied.
