Trinity is one of 154 worship centers in NYC participating in the annual Sacred Sites Open House Weekend sponsored by New York Landmarks Conservancy. Saturday, May 21 from 11am-5pm. Drop in to discover how art and architecture tell the story of God at Trinity.
Designed by Swedish architect Martin Gravely Hedmark, the building was dedicated on January 21, 1931. Until 1942, the language of this church was Swedish. The congregation dates to 1867, established to reach out to Swedish immigrants.
Both inside and out, the church features Art Deco style. Art Deco combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials, often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation.
For more information and a tour, please come to one of the talks at 12pm, 2pm, or 4pm on Saturday, May 21. OR Sunday, May 22 after each service for a condensed version.
