Stop the demolition and redevelopment of 68-74 Trinity Place!

This petition had 65 supporters

The Vestry of Trinity Church voted to replace it's existing 90-year old parish office building, a stunning example of Gothic Revival/Art Deco architecture at 68-74 Trinity Place, with a new structure to be designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli. Built in 1923, 68-74 Trinity Place is an architectural jewel that is part of a necklace of historic Neoclassical and Art Deco buildings, which encompasses the centuries old churchyard of Trinity Church. From the perspective of Wall St., it's distinctive crown-like cupola has served as a soaring adornment, which has gracefully hovered above the gothic spire of Trinity Church for nearly a century. At it's base, a delicate cast iron, pedestrian bridge traverses the street of Trinity Place to connect with the ancient Trinity churchyard. A rare survivor, this unique bridge is perhaps the last of it's kind that still exists in Manhattan.
