Since November 2012, the 1876 stained glass window in the Gothic facade of the First Presbyterian Church has been covered up.
The action was taken to protect the window from further deterioration and the public from the possible hazard of falling glass and debris.
Tomorrow at 11 a.m., at the annual meeting of the Friends of the First Presbyterian Church, people anxious about the fate of the window will have the opportunity to learn about the plans for its future. At the meeting, Chuck Woodard of Architectural Stained Glass in East Chatham will deliver a slide presentation on the plans for the window's restoration. Also it is expected that a grant awarded by the New York Landmarks Conservancy Sacred Sites Program will be announced at the meeting. It seems that the days the magnificent window remains hidden from public view may be numbered!
The meeting, which takes place at the church on the corner of Warren and Fourth streets, is free and open to the public. Lunch will be available after the meeting for a contribution of $15.
