The AIA Guide to New York City describes this church as “a provincial shingle masterpiece.” The church is colored richly in red wooden shingles with yellow trim and features a square belfry crowned with an ogival roof. Its adjacent rectory boasts the same color and materials scheme, with an ocular window on the primary façade, which subtly nods to the flare of the church.
