This 1890s brick church and school, located at 626 Bushwick Avenue right in Bushwick, has gotten a second life as a new development rental known as the Saint Marks. The church details aren’t all extinct, with brickwork and vaulting in some of the apartments. This two-bedroom unit is one of the most stunning in the building–and it’s now asking $3,925 a month.
