The Church of Saint Luke in the Fields

The Church of Saint Luke in the Fields

The musicians of Parthenia are Artists-in-Residence at The Church of Saint Luke in the Fields, known for its vibrant musical life. St. Luke's is located at 487 Hudson Street, in Greenwich Village, New York City, at the intersection of Hudson Street and Grove Street. This historic church was founded in 1820 on farmland and was donated by Trinity Church, to accommodate the expansion of New York City northward into Greenwich Village. The original church building was reminiscent of an English village church, with a square tower at one end, but made of brick and built in the Federal style. The church was used as a location for the 2008 film Doubt.

The church boasts some of the most distinctive and admired gardens in New York City, comprising more than two-thirds of an acre of walks, lawns, and a fine collection of garden standards, rare hybrids and native American flora in a warm microclimate that provides a small but important way-station for migrating birds and butterflies during the spring and fall seasons.

The St. Luke's Thrift Shop, located down a few stairs, is one of the best-kept secrets of the Village, with a myriad of items for sale, and great bag sales in March and September where customers may fill a bag of items for a set price.

By Subway: Take the 1 to the Christopher Street station, the 2 or 3 to the 14th Street station, or the A, C, E, B, F or D to the West 4th Street station.

From Christopher Street: Walk west on Christopher Street, away from Sheridan Square, towards the Hudson River. At Hudson Street, make a left. The church is one block to your left, on the west side of the street.

From 14th Street: Walk south on 7th Avenue to West 11th Street. Turn right on West 11th to Hudson. Turn left on Hudson and walk to Grove Street. The church is on the west side of the street.

From West 4th Street: Leave the station at the south (West 3rd Street) exit. Walk south on Sixth Avenue to Bleecker Street. Turn Right. Follow Bleecker across Seventh Avenue. At Grove Street, turn left. Follow Grove to Hudson Street. The church is across the street.
