A World of Possibilities
Just a few steps into this incredible building you'll feel like you've entered another world, where the stars always shine brightly and the sky has no limit. Known as The Church of St. Isidoro & St. Leandro, this building is incredible as is, but also offers a world of possibility as a house of worship, community center, school, single family home, development site or just about anything you can imagine.
Currently, the main floor is a spectacular and ornate 74 foot sanctuary featuring a soaring 30 foot ceiling. With stained glass windows and gold leaf sconces, virtually every inch of wall space is covered in framed art and elaborate, spiritual, three dimensional mosaics. There is an 800 square foot mezzanine/balcony, originally built for the choir, where you'll feel like you can reach for stars, as the ceiling has been lovingly hand painted with golden stars. The sanctuary feels ethereal and, dare we say, almost magical.
The building's lower level, which housed the church's social hall with stage and kitchen, offers close to 2,000 square feet of usable space. The upper level currently features a two bedroom apartment with large terrace. Additionally, there is 5,000 square feet of unused air rights.
Located in vibrant and eclectic Alphabet City, this charming block is home to three Community Gardens and is convenient to both East River Park and beautiful Tompkins Square Park, as well as eclectic, trendy restaurants and cafes and public transportation.
If you are even the least bit curious, take a moment and visit this unique property. Words and photos can't do it justice. Come experience the magic of this space and see the world of opportunity and unlimited potential.
