Queen of All Saints, Fort Greene
The church and school of Queen of All Saints are on the north side of Layfayette Avenue at Vanderbilt Avenue, with the postal address 300 Vanderbilt Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11205. The rectory telephone is 718-638-7625. An informative and inspirational parish website is linked here. The school telephone is 718-857-3114. The church was built about 1913 as a chapel for the planned cathedral across the street.
The parish school has been renamed Queen of All Saints Catholic Academy, but the website seems to be down (9.2.2016).
A friend tells me that the morning sun beautifully illuminates the windows. An interior photo from 1913 is linked here. The architect was Gustave Steinbeck, who also designed the impressive church of the Blessed Sacrament on West 71st Street, Manhattan.
