Zion—St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church, formerly known as Deutsche Evangelische Kirche von Yorkville and Zion Lutheran Church, is a historic Lutheran church at 339—341 East 84th Street in Yorkville, Manhattan, New York City.

Building[edit]

The neo-Gothic was built in 1888 as Deutsche Evangelische Kirche von Yorkville. The structure became Zion Lutheran Church in 1892, when that congregation was founded. It is now Zion-St. Mark's Church.[2] The German-speaking congregation grew rapidly with the influx of mass immigration to the United States from Germany at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries and merged with St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church (New York City) in 1946.[3] The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
