Thank you so much for this. I was a parishioner at St. Elizabeth’s for a time in the late 1960s to mid-1970s and I am also an art historian. There was little in the church to interest me except for that amazing window over the altar. I now write a blog about Catholic art history and am preparing a post on Saint Elizabeth of Hungary and Thuringia. Since I may be one of the very few, if not the only, art historian who knows about these windows I’ve been tearing my hair out about how to find out anything about them or even any decent pictures. I am somewhat disabled and a long trip uptown to photograph them is out of the question right now. The parish website has been unhelpful, except for a few long distance shots. I hope it will be OK if I use your excellent pictures of the three window panels in my post.

Have a letter from 1942, my father was trying to locate his Mother’s grave. She was buried from St. Elizabeth’s shortly after his birth (1909-1910). Even to see a drawing of the original church with some history has been helpful. Believe they resided at 1061 St. Nicholas Avenue, in a new building. The search continues. Thank you! Be well.
