Logo of Metro Baptist Church

Built at the turn of the 20th Century, our building originally housed St. Clement Polish-Catholic Church. A grand and ornate structure, the building originally functioned as both a church and a parochial school. So broad was its use that the Cardinal who blessed the church’s opening praised it for its “practicability.”

After construction of the Lincoln Tunnel led to the relocation of many of the church’s parishioners, the Diocese eventually closed the doors. Before it became our home, the church building served as a rec facility (with a basketball court in the sanctuary) and home of the Daytop Center for men recovering from addiction.
