BROOKLYN - Two historic buildings in Brooklyn are competing in a citywide competition for grant money to make needed restorations.

The Brown Memorial Baptist Church in Clinton Hill wants to restore a Tiffany-stained glass window from 1860 that depicts the abolitionist movement.

Eramus Hall Campus is also competing for the grant so it can restore a series of stained-glass artwork.

The grant is being funded by Partners in Preservation. The group has opened up voting for the grant to anyone through its website.

Voting for the grant continues through May 21 at the Partners for Preservation website.
