Immaculate Conception Church, Manhattan

The Church of the Immaculate Conception is a parish church in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, located at 414 East 14th Street, near First Avenue, Manhattan, New York City, and previously at 505 East 14th Street.[3]

History[edit]

The parish was established in 1855.[4]

In 1943 the parish took over the chapel and hospital buildings now known as Church of the Immaculate Conception and Clergy Houses, completed in 1896 to designs by Barney and Chapman and formerly owned by Grace Church. This existing facility was expanded with a four-storey brick convent and parochial school, at 415-419 East 13th Street and 414-416 East 14th Street, designed by Eggers & Higgins for $700,000, and completed in 1945.[2]

There is another church of the same name on Staten Island established in 1887,[5] and a third in Ditmars, Astoria, Queens,[6] and also Immaculate Conception Church (Bronx).
