A church was created in an existing row house on the north side of West 14th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues, in the area once known as Little Spain. The Spanish Baroque facade that includes a rounded pediment and iron porch was designed by Gustave Steinback and added in 1921.<br> <td width="250"><img src="/Organs/NYC/img/OurLadyGuadalupe1970Intebay.jpg" alt="Original Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe - New York City" WIDTH="250" border="0" align="right" > As the city&#39;s Latin population changed over the years, Our Lady of Guadalupe has served spaniards, Spanish-Americans, Puerto Ricans and Mexicans. By the early 2000s, the small church could no longer accomodate the growing Mexican population, and in 2003 the congregation moved to nearby St. Bernard&#39;s Church at 330 West 14th, which was renamed Our Lady of Guadalupe at St. Bernard&#39;s.

The Reuben Midmer & Sons organ in Our Lady of Guadalupe Church was originally built around 1900 for a church in the Bronx, and was moved to its present location about 1930. The following specification is from an "organ notebook" kept by Charles Sharpeger, who indicated that the Midmer organ had tubular-pneumatic action. At some time, an unknown builder electrified the organ and provided a Reisner drawknob console. The Pedal Lieblich Gedeckt action (using the Bourdon stop on lower wind pressure) was added at an unknown time, along with a 12-pipe extension for the Pedal 8' Flute. ----------
