"Troy's Tiffany Treasures"

Troy, New York

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012
9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Troy may very well have more Tiffany windows per square mile than any other city in the nation. 

We will briefly describe the life’s work of Louis Comfort Tiffany and then guide you on a walking and driving tour of the abundant Tiffany windows and interior designs in downtown Troy, NY. 

Some have claimed that Troy has more Tiffany windows per square mile than any other city in the world. That may or may not be true, but it is certain that it has a world-class collection of Tiffany windows in its downtown that includes some of the more significant Tiffany windows anywhere. This tour will visit the five key downtown Tiffany sites, including St. John's Episcopal Church, with its famous "St. John's Vision" window (1899, by Tiffany's Agnes Northrop, all landscape, with about 8,000 pieces of glass in it), the Bush Memorial Center at Russell Sage College (three Tiffany windows and many others similar in style in an 1830s Greek Revival church building), the Troy Public Library, with its well-known specially-commissioned "Aldus Window," St. Paul's Episcopal Church, with an extremely rare entire interior designed by Tiffany, and St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, with over forty Tiffany windows in a single building. 

This tour will be lead by The Hudson Mohawk Gateway. 


  • Cost is $20 for members; please consider becoming a member of APTNE to join us on this special tour.  
  • Advance registration closes September 17th; "walk-in" spots may be available subject to capacity.  
  • Rain or shine, dress for the weather.  
  • Cameras allowed.  
  • The tour usually starts from either St. John's Episcopal Church at First and Liberty Streets in downtown Troy, or at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church at Third and Jackson Streets in South Troy. WE NEVER KNOW THE STARTING LOCATION UNTIL JUST BEFORE THE DATE OF THE TOUR. Three of the five tour sites are working churches, and thus, our schedule is completely contingent on possible funerals or other religious services that need to be scheduled at the last minute.
  • You will receive an email with the final details on or shortly before Friday, September 21.  Please plan on coming about fifteen minutes early so we can check everyone in and then start the tour itself promptly at 9:30.
