St. George's Episcopal Church is a historic church located at 209 East 16th Street at Rutherford Place, on Stuyvesant Square in Manhattan, New York City.
This was the home church (1908-48) of Harry Thacker Burleigh, African-American composer, arranger, and singer who helped establish the Spiritual in the attention and acceptance of all Americans, including classically trained musicians. He performed in the church choir for 50 years. His greatest composition was "Deep River," which has been said to capture the yearnings of a people.
Called "one of the first and most significant examples of Early Romanesque Revival church architecture in America", the church exterior was designed by Charles Otto Blesch and the interior by Leopold Eidlitz. It is one of the two sanctuaries of the Calvary-St. George's Parish.
The church was named a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
