Description & Building Alterations

A two story stable and carriage house was constructed on this lot in 1868 by David Jones using architects Thompson & Walsh.  By 1916 it had become a synagogue, one family dwelling and stable owned by the Michael J. Adrian Corp of 137 East 34th Street.  That same year a freight elevator was installed.  In 1964 the former stable became a food store and the upper two floors were demolished by owner Samuel Spiess of 92 Avenue C.  Also in that year a certificate of occupancy was filed for a public garage which was denied.  Subsequently, a permit was filed for a warehouse.  The building was acquired by the Iglesia Pentecostal Church in 1977 which built a new second story in 2001.
