The Church of St. Luke & St. Matthew in Brooklyn, New York has been a cornerstone of the Episcopal community in New York since 1888. For 136 years, the church has been a beautiful showcase of traditional architecture and reverence. Petrillo Stone has a passion for working on historical buildings, and it was a true honor to contribute stone to St. Luke & St. Matthew.

Brownstone in Church Architecture

Brownstone is a very abrasive stone that has played a significant role in church architecture, particularly in the northeastern United States. Its durability and distinctive color make it a popular choice for constructing and restoring historical buildings. The warm, earthy tones of brownstone add a timeless elegance to the structures it graces, and its robust nature ensures the longevity and resilience of the buildings.

Working with Brownstone

Working with brownstone requires skill and precision, as its abrasive quality can be challenging to handle. However, the results are undeniably worth the effort. When expertly cut and placed, brownstone enhances the architectural beauty of a church, highlighting intricate details and adding depth to the overall design.

At Petrillo Stone, we take great pride in our craftsmanship and our ability to work with such a unique and historically significant material. In fact, we have also been working with Brownstone on this project for the Palace Hotel in NYC. Contributing to the restoration and preservation of The Church of St. Luke & St. Matthew was a project that allowed us to showcase our expertise while honoring the rich heritage of this beloved Episcopal church.

Preserving History

We are grateful for the opportunity to be part of such meaningful work and look forward to continuing our mission of enhancing and preserving historical landmarks with the finest quality stonework. Whether it’s through the use of brownstone or other materials, our dedication to excellence remains unwavering.
