We had lunch at Inside Park at St. Bart’s, which occupies a portion of St. Bartholomew’s Church (seen in the background): a historic Episcopal parish founded in January 1835, and located on the east side of Park Avenue between 50th and 51st Street in Midtown Manhattan, in New York City. In 2018, the church celebrated the centennial of its first service in its Park Avenue home. In 1992, with the parish’s support, the St Bartholomew’s Preservation Foundation was established. After a two-year fund drive, restoration of the St. Bartholomew’s site began. Leaking roof drains were made watertight, the iconic dome was temporarily secured, and the Great Terrace and 50th Street wall were rebuilt. “Inside Park,” the site’s popular restaurant, also opened in 1992.
