This Gothic Revival Episcopal church, structured in 1843 by James Renwick Jr, was made of marble quarried by detainees at ‘Sing,’ the state prison in the town of Ossining, 30 miles up the Hudson River (which, legend has it, is the root of the articulation ‘being sent upriver’). Following quite a while of disregard, Grace Church has been wonderfully reestablished.
It’s presently a National Landmark, whose detailed carvings, transcending tower and verdant, prepped yard make certain to leave you speechless as you advance down this generally customary stretch of the Village. The recolored glass windows inside are shocking, and the taking off inside makes an ideal setting for the incessant melodic programming (as of late there was a progression of ‘Bach at Noon’ organ shows). Free guided visits are offered at 1pm on Sundays.
