When the Church of St. Thomas at 53rd & Fifth burned down in 1905, a competition was held to select the design of a building. Considered an important commission as the church was then perhaps at the peak of its high social status among Manhattan’s Protestant congregations. Among the entries submitted was this design by the firm of Lord and Hewlett in an English Perpendicular style. The selected and constructed design was by Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson.
