I misidentified this church ( I previously said it was Trinity Church); it is actually Christ Church, Episcopal, on Broadway at Park Street, New Haven. This parish developed as a mission of Trinity Church nearer the city center.

"We were founded in 1854 as a mission of the city’s first Episcopal parish, Trinity. There was no church beyond the city center, and the small structure of the first Christ Church was erected on the edge of town, adjacent to the almshouse and the town farm, an area then called Poverty Square…..From 1895–98 Fr. Morgan oversaw the construction of the current church, a masterpiece by the Gothic revival architect, Henry Vaughan."
