I worshiped there as a kid. It was designed as an English country church for the weekend homes of the folks who worshiped at St. Bart's on Park Avenue in the winter.

Fun fact. The church originally ended at the bell tower, but the back wall was moved back 50 feet and the nave expanded in the late 1950's.
