Our Lady of Victory Roman Catholic Church

Our Lady of Victory Roman Catholic Church

Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn

Our Lady of Victory (R.C.) Church, the dominant feature of a large complex of ecclesiastical buildings, was designed by architect Thomas P. Houghton. Building was begun on 1891 and dedicated on October 25, 1893.

The church provides a dramatic use of the corner site. Constructed of dark random ashlar with light colored stone trim the church is Gothic eclectic style and has a steep gabled roof over the central nave. The entire western facade is dominated by a stone portal with a Gothic arch and large rose window above. This window, with its six-pointed star and Gothic trefoil tracery, makes use of Old Testament religious symbolism. The MacDonough Street side is distinguished by a tower abutted by a small round turret with conical roof. Our Lady of Victory and its adjunct structures on Throop Avenue, and MacDonough Streets form a picturesque and remarkably uniform group of buildings within the Historic District.

Historically and sociologically, the church provides a capsule social history of the area. The parish was organized in 1868, Just after the Civil War, and its first church was built the same year. The first parishioners were largely Irish immigrants who had come to the United States to find work and educational opportunities for their children. Our Lady's first school was opened in 1872. The present building complex was planned during the long pastorate of Monsignor James Woods, who within his lifetime was able to complete the church in spite of the financial panic of 1893, other buildings were erected in the early 20th century.

After World War II, the ethnic character of the neighborhood changed. The younger generation, as elsewhere, moved away from the city and, as the older inhabitants died, Black families took their place. Today, our Lady of Victory serves a large Black community. It also sponsors a wide range of Black community action groups working for religious, material and social improvement within the neighborhood. Its educational program has over 700 pupils and includes a head Start center, summer vacation school and classes for both teenagers and adults in Afro-American culture.

Stuyvesant Heights is a residential district that was largely developed between 1870-and 1920. It lies in the north-central part of Brooklyn. The name "Stuyvesant Heights" came into local usage during the first decade of the 20th century and distinguishes it from the larger Bedford-Stuyvesant area in which it lies, and under which name it was originally heard by the Commission. The name Stuyvesant Heights derives from the fact that Stuyvesant Avenue is the district's principal thoroughfare.

An Historic District should be possessed of such a distinctive quality that, on entering it front any aide, one should at once become aware of a neighborhood set apart from its surroundings. Stuyvesant Heights is just such an area, it is almost exclusively a residential neighborhood. Its pleasant tree-shaded streets and broad avenues are lined with a variety of dwellings. While there are an unusual number of free-standing suburban-type residences and over a dozen four-story apartment houses, it is the row upon row of two and three-story houses, many set behind attractively planted front yards, that gives the district its unusually harmonious character and special quality. There are only two commercial buildings within the district, although several small stores serve community needs. There are also four churches of various denominations and two parochial schools. Decatur Junior High School, built in 1965, is located just outside the Historic District.

The development of the area, concentrated in the five decades between 1870 and 1920, reflects the successive stylistic phases of American architecture as Interpreted by local builders and architects. The Italianate mode, popular in the 1860s, is characteristic of the earliest houses and is continued on into the seventies, often modified by French Second Empire and neo-Grec details. The neo-Grec style continued well into the 1880s when it was supplanted by the more sophisticated styles of the later 19th century—the Romanesque Revival, the Queen Anne mode and the new classicism inspired by the Chicago World's Fair of 1893. Of the three groups of ecclesiastical structures in the district, two are Victorian Gothic in character, while the third is a fine example of the Romanesque Revival style. The turn of the century saw the influence of the neo-Federal, neo-Georgian and neo-Renaissance styles. Late in the second decade of this century, house designs derived from the Spanish Renaissance appeared.

The majority of streets offer an interesting mixture of architectural styles, while within each style there is a delightful variety of design. Visual harmony is assured, however, through the predominantly low building heights, the long rows of townhouses and the use of a variety of materials in harmony with one another.

The kitchen cabinets are beech, the counter tops are black granite (Profundo Noir), and the kitchen appliances are brushed stainless steel. Taps and faucets and lighting fixtures are brushed nickel.

After the trim is placed, window coverings will be next. Right now, I have a temporary roman shade over the kitchen door wall and the living room window. I've covered the door wall with a white window film. These work well to block the brightest sun on the hottest days.

Personally, I do not like door walls. I'd rather have a smaller window and window door instead, but that is another project in the distant future.
