Last year some website had reasonable photos of lots of windows in the church but that content has unfortunately disappeared.

The inscription for one of the Tiffany windows was written in German, which is unusual, but makes sense because it was the St. Luke Evangelical German Lutheran Church.

The Lamb Studios windows that I know about in the church are the three chancel ones, dating to 1907. They are not shown in that Brooklyn Eagle article.

The submission to the Landmark Preservations Commission, with photos of more windows, and also some exterior shots showing the condition of the windows, is available at:

http://www1.nyc.gov/assets/lpc/downloads/pdf/presentation-materials/20171212/257-Washington-Avenue.pdf

But the PDF is 350 Mb, so not small.
