The magnanimous Clement Clark Moore, the man who gave the moniker of Chelsea to the neighborhood, established this church in 1831. The original chapel features a Greek-revival design, however a few years later, a larger church was constructed right next to the smaller chapel (which is now the rectory) in the Gothic Revival style. The Episcopalian denomination also attends events at the the massive General Theological Seminary
right down the street and the church hosts the Atlantic Theater Company in an adjacent building. Also of note, St. Peter's presents Music in Chelsea
, a concert series with live music ranging from classical to folk. For more details, check the website or call ahead.
