description/

Consecrated on November 5, 1841, The Church of the Ascension is one of the City's foremost examples of Gothic Revival architecture. Designed by Richard Upjohn (the English-born architect also responsible for Trinity Church in the Financial District and Christ Church in Cobble Hill, among many others), the building was named a national historic landmark in 1987, and it's easy to see why: the graceful lines of the edifice and its artwork and stained glass all make for a serene place of worship. But the church hosts events beyond its Episcopalian services. In addition to organ recitals and classical concerts, the venue has hosted the likes of singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright.
