Nave and sanctuary ...
In keeping with the Eastern Orthodox rites, the polygonal sanctuary at the end of the nave is raised several steps above the nave floor. It is screened from the main body of the church by a Gothic style wooden inconostasis. ... The four silver icons (only two visible in photo) on either side of the inconostasis are from the Elm Street church.

Clearstory window ... In 2002, parishioners thought the stars decorating the ceiling over the clerestory windows were gold because of decades of built-up grime. After cleaning they were found to be white.
In the 2002 renovation, gold was used on on the granite columns and arches
