Riverside Church – 480-490 Riverside Drive, NY, NY

The Riverside Church is one of the best known religious structures in New York City. Financed with gifts from members of the church, including the industrialist and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr., the neo-Gothic style complex, built between 1928 and 1930, consists of three distinct sections: a five-bay nave and chancel extending north toward West 122nd Street, a mid-block twenty-two story tower housing the narthex, Christ Chapel, belfry, offices and meeting rooms. Patterned on French Gothic prototypes, the exterior is faced in Indiana limestone.

SCOPE OF WORK:

  1. Miscellaneous limestone replacement at all facades.
  2. Cleaning of Limestone on all facades.
  3. Waterproofing of all cornices, sills and water tables.
  4. Replacement or refurbishment of the deteriorated steel window lintels and relieving angles.
