BROOKLYN - A historic church is asking for help to restore its 120-year-old stained glass windows.

The windows of Brown Memorial Baptist Church in Clinton Hill were installed back in 1891 and have been damaged over time.

The church has been awarded a $200,000 grant for the windows, but congregants say they need an extra $150,000 to complete the restoration.

Church leaders hope to raise the money by fall and have the work completed by next June.
