Description 

St. Patrick’s Parish was established in 1871 under the Reverend John Joseph Swift. The first church was a weather-boarded building erected on Sixth Avenue between Ingalls Avenue and Douw Street in 1872.

Ground was broken for the present church on April 2, 1912. It was designed by Troy architects M. F. Cummings & Sons. The interior was fitted with stained glass windows from Austria, Tiffany chandeliers, marble statues and altars as well as a cross carved by Lang of Oberammergau, Germany. A Austin organ, one of the largest and finest organs north of New York City was installed in 1925 and inaugurated with a recital played by the organist of Antwerp Cathedral, Charles-Marie Courboin.

St.Patrick's Church was closed in 2010.
