(2 May 2016) A historic church in New York City was destroyed in a raging fire just hours after its Orthodox worshippers celebrated Easter.
The fire that started at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava in Manhattan sent plumes of smoke billowing into the city’s skyline.
The fire was largely extinguished three hours later, but firefighters had to beat back small pockets of flames. Authorities didn’t disclose the cause of the fire, which gutted the building and destroyed the church’s roof.
Fire officials said the church’s caretaker ran inside the Gothic Revival style building to try to put out the blaze but suffered minor smoke inhalation and had to be rescued.
The fire broke out on the same day Orthodox Christians around the world celebrated Easter. The church website listed services on Sunday morning and an Easter luncheon at 1 p.m.
City Council Member Corey Johnson called for a full investigation into the cause of the fire.
The church was designed by architect Richard M. Upjohn and was built in the early 1850s. One of its earlier congregants was novelist Edith Wharton, who wrote “The Age of Innocence.” She was married in the church in 1885.
The Serbian Orthodox Church purchased the building from the Episcopal Diocese in New York in 1943. The building was designated a city landmark in 1968.

Trinity Church is a historic, active, parish church in the Episcopal Diocese of New York. The current Trinity Church is the third structure since 1696, when Governor Benjamin Fletcher approved the purchase of land in Lower Manhattan for its construction. When the current structure was finished in 1846, its spire and cross formed the highest point in New York. It was surpassed in 1890 by the New York World Building.
According to Wikipedia, during the September 11, 2001 attacks, people took refuge from the massive debris cloud inside the church.
Trinity Church, at 75 Broadway in lower Manhattan, sits near the intersection of Wall Street and Broadway.

In the Ground Zero area, the Greek Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas was destroyed during the 9/11 attacks in the heart of Manhattan. In September 2015, the construction of a new church of Saint Nicholas started.This place of worship will have some distinctive arrangements such a nondenominational space.
2SPetrvs filmed these wonderful impressions of the annual Corpus Christi Procession through Midtown Manhattan, New York City, in the area passing Times Square, with the parish of Holy Innocents in New York. On this occasion, the Redeemer of the world is gloriously and reverently brought out into the world, particularly on the streets of perhaps the most secularized and fast-paced metropolis. As the only church in NYC that offers Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form daily, the Church of the Holy Innocents is a vital thread that holds the city together, even if many New Yorkers themselves do not realize it.
Lauda Sion Salvatorem, lauda ducem et pastorem, in hymnis et canticis.
Quantum potes, tantum aude: quia maior omni laude, nec laudare sufficis.
