The Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Sava in New York City is an architec- tural treasure listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a New York City Landmark. Formerly Trinity Chapel of the Trinity (Episcopal) Church on Wall Street, it was designed in 1851 by the noted architect Richard M. Upjohn and is a splendid example of Gothic Revival architecture, gracing Manhattan’s historic Chelsea District.

For more than seven decades, this sanctuary has provided spiritual comfort and hope to its Serbian Orthodox congregation and the many waves of immigrants for whom this was the gateway into the New World. Tragically, this cathedral was de- stroyed by fire on Easter Sunday, May 1, 2016, the holiest day for Eastern Orthodox Christians. Both Nikola Tesla and Michael Pupin, world-renowned scientists and inventors, were memorialized in bronze busts, which miraculously sustained no damage.

The tragic loss of this historic building leaves the Serbian Orthodox community without a single church within the city limits. A place of refuge and a vital resource for many people over the years, the Cathedral of Saint Sava served not only New Yorkers but the Serbian diaspora across the United States.
