St. Paul and St. Andrew is a vital part of the fabric of New York City's Upper West Side. Home to four churches and a large synagogue, Congregation B'nai Jeshuruni, this century-old building also houses New York's largest emergency food program, the West Side Campaign Against Hunger, a shelter for homeless women as well as a large tutoring program. One of their kitchens provides Meals-On-Wheels for Upper West Side seniors. The 115 year old landmark is in urgent need of repair. The roof, front steps, sidewalks and areas throughout the building must be fixed in the next several months.
THE CHURCH OF ST. PAUL AND ST. ANDREW is located at 263 W. 86th Street, New York, New York. For more information, please call (212) 362-3179 or visit blessthishouse.brownpapertickets.com.
