The Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Sts. Constantine and Helen, more simply Sts. Constantine and Helen, Cathedral (though known by Greek Orthodox parishoners from other churches as NAK) is a Greek Orthodox cathedral church located in downtown Brooklyn, New York. It is probably known for taking in parishioners from St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Manhattan, destroyed during the September 11 attacks.

Founded in 1913, it was the first Greek Orthodox parish on Long Island, and is one of the oldest Greek Orthodox churches in the City of New York[1]. After meeting for several years in a small building at Johnson and Lawrence Streets, the community raised funds to build a new structure, whose cornerstone was laid April 16, 1916.

It received damage in 1992, when the church caught on fire, but repairs have been made and restored. The Church also is affiliated with A.Fantis Parochial School which was established in 1963, 50 years after the church and is located right behind the church. The Church is also located down the block from the New York Transit Museum.

The church was expanded in 1946 and again in 1960. It was designated Brooklyn's cathedral in June 1966.[1]
