Description & Building Alterations

The four-story with basement building at 62 St. Mark’s Place was originally erected as a row house in 1843. In 1916 it was converted for St. Cyril’s Roman Catholic Church by architect Fred J. Schwarz in 1916. The building offered space for the church in front and dwellings on the upper floors.

The present three-bay facade features a pedimented brick parapet with a molded cornice and a cross on top, a two-story high-arched window opening in the center of the first and second stories, and symmetrical entryways on the first floor with arched openings. The historic window lintels have been stripped.
