Database Manager on September 21, 2012:

Updated through online information from John Igoe. -- Organ relocated to Marion, Iowa. An altar fire on Christmas Eve 1989 in the NYC location heavily damaged the organ. Despite repairs to the church and the organ (with duct tape), dwindling attendance in the 1990s forced the church to close in 2005.
