Once the site of a chapel on Peter Stuyvesant’s farm, St. Mark’s is more than just a church: the sanctuary does double duty as a performance space and plays as much a part in the neighborhood’s cultural history as in its history of worship. Check the churchyard’s gravestones for a veritable Who’s Who of 19th century New York families, including Petrus Stuyvesant himself, the Schermerhorns, Fish, and Beekmans. Old-school starchitect Ernest Flagg designed the sturdy old rectory in 1901.
