Transfiguration R. C. Church

Cornerstone laid in September 1889. The current structure superseded an older chapel designed by Thomas Houghton1  dating to 1875 that was located just to the east on Hooper Street. The original chapel was built with the intention of later being converted to a school, and therefore had beam pockets built into the walls for the installation of two new floors at a future date.

11 Arion Place

Arion Hall, once home to the Arion Singing Society, is one of many remnants of Bushwick's once-thriving German population. Designed by Bushwick's go-to architect of the late 19th century, Theobald Engelhardt, the building sits on Arion Street (formerly Wall Street), between Broadway and Bushwick Avenue/Beaver Street.
