NYC Architecture Lost 

This Church of the Disciples was built in 1873 at a cost of $150,000.  The property that the church sat upon cost $125,000.  While the church raised $100,000 the rest of the debt was financed by the congregation but was unable to be repaid.  As a result the church was foreclosed and sold at auction.  It was demolished in 1899.
Made of iron and masonry, this church could seat 3,000.
