Community works to restore 158-year-old church in Brooklyn Heights
A 19th century church is in need of a facelift and Brooklyn Heights residents are doing their part to help. The Episcopal Church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity is 158 years old and it's starting to show. The church is a historic landmark for both the borough and the nation, but it's also in danger of suffering permanent damage. Church officials have launched a "Raise the Roof Campaign" to help raise money for a restoration project. A benefit organ concert has been held and several private donations have been made in an effort to repair the Brooklyn cathedral. In 2002, a global preservation group listed the Brooklyn Heights Episcopal church as one of the world?s most endangered monuments. Due to recent community efforts, the church has recently been removed from that list.
