St. Michael, Fourth Avenue and 42 St., Sunset Park
The parish of St. Michael was established in 1870, and this imposing church was built in 1905, under the direction of architect Raymond J. Almirall. The view looks north, with the former high school and the church taking up the block from 43rd St. to 42nd Street on the west side of Fourth Avenue, Brooklyn.
The mailing address for St. Michael's parish is 352 42nd Street, Brooklyn NY 11232, telephone 718-768-6065.
St. Michael's parish elementary school closed in 2005.
As with all photos on this blog, a click will enlarge the photo and enable you to read inscriptions.
This LINK will explain the housing of St. Michael's Diocesan HS (for boys) at the parish from 1926 to about 1960, when the teachers and boys moved to the new Xaverian High School.
