Salam Arabic Lutheran Church, at 345 Ovington Avenue between 3rd and 4th Avenues in Bay Ridge, was demolished today.
It will be replaced by a 5-story, 25-unit residential development.
The developer paid $1.5 million for the property.
Originally named Salem Danish Evangelical Lutheran, after a church in Copenhagen, Denmark, the building was designed by Danish architect Carl Jensen.
The Arab congregation that acquired the church in 1995 changed the name to Salam.
