St. Joseph’s Church | Albany, New York

St. Joseph’s Church | Albany, New York 

St. Joseph's in Arbor Hill, originally constructed in the late 19th century, underwent significant modifications over the years. The main spire was added in 1910, approximately two decades after its initial construction in 1879.

Designed by architect Patrick Keely, renowned for his work on the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, St. Joseph's Church stands as a prominent example of neo-gothic architecture in Albany, New York's Arbor Hill neighborhood. Its architectural significance is underscored by its designation as a city landmark and its integral role in the Albany skyline.

However, despite its historical and architectural significance, St. Joseph's Church ceased operations in 1994. Subsequently, the City of Albany initiated the process of selling the property, listing it for sale in February 2023.
