CHRIST CHURCH NEW BRIGHTON
One of the most beautiful churches on Staten Island, this late Gothic style Episcopal Church was built in the New Brighton neighborhood in 1904. It is quite a large complex: The Church itself is attached to a big two story parish hall via an enclosed cloister; both sit next to the Tudor style rectory. The three buildings surround a beautiful lawn with graceful old trees and a U-shaped driveway.
Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004, Christ Church deserves to be seen more widely.
This property lends itself to filming and can provide a variety of views. The Church sits on a corner lot and can present as a small town locale with a large Tudor house. Filming can also be done in the Nave or Sanctuary, where the stone interior resembles an old country church in the south of France. There is an old-fashioned office with glass bookshelves, a large auditorium, a large gymnasium, and easy access to a big parking lot.
