Jeff Scofield on November 12, 2020:

From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: For the new chapel an organ was built by Reuben Midmer & Sons of Brooklyn, and was presumably contemporary with the opening of the building in 1913. This organ had one manual and pedals and was controlled by tubular-pneumatic action. The organ was extant in 1976 but its status in 2012 is unknown.
