Jeff Scofield on December 04, 2020:

From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: On April 9, 1910, the church was almost completely destroyed by a fire blamed on a defective electric light wire connecting with the organ. The damage was placed at $50,000. n 1910, F.J.N. Tallman built a two-manual organ for the Greene Avenue Church. Tallman (1860-1950) worked with the Roosevelt firm of New York City in the 1880s, and by 1894 had established Tallman & Co., an organ factory and music store, in Nyack, N.Y. Around 1903 or 1904 he relocated his business to New York City (possibly Brooklyn). In May 1928, the church property was sold to a developer who planned to errect a six-story elevator apartment building. It is not known if the congregation merged with another church or disbanded.
