Remarkable houses of worship in Brooklyn
1) Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help
The parish of Our Lady of Perpetual Help was established by Bishop Charles Edward McDonnell in 1892. The construction of the current Romanesque, granite church with a limestone exterior by architect Franz Joseph Untersee, began in 1907. It was designated a minor Basilica in 1969. At the time of its completion the parish was largely Irish in character, but today it is predominantly Hispanic and Chinese.
