St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church

Similar to many church buildings, Saint Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church is typical in its need to address and manage the extreme expense and logistics that go with maintaining a significant historic structure in New York City.  Acheson Doyle Partner’s challenge has been to address all restorations and improvements with the greatest of care and consideration. Our emphasis and efforts have been the attention to detail to satisfy the regulatory requirements for a building that earned a listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 and was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 2016.


The neo-byzantine terracotta tile dome initially identified in 2008 as in need of restoration was the project that has proved to be the turning point for the continued heath and maintenance for this significant and important New York City Landmark. Completed in 2015, the restoration of the dome has led to the restoration of the adjoining Community House building. As work continues, ADP has prepared documents that will address the exterior restoration of the remaining masonry of the church that will be undertaken in phases. The first of four phases, the North façade facing 51st street, was completed in 2020, with the the remaining phases scheduled for 2022, 2023 and 2024.
