A French Gothic Style Church made in 1824 was the next church on our walk down 5th Avenue. Very intricate indeed.
The juxtaposition of this french gothic style church, sandwiched between two very modern up and down gleaming skyscrapers was extraordinary. At one point, the idea of the tall churches was to show the glory of God, towering over the secular world. And now? You have a bank on the left and a giant mall on the right. And a balding man in front at the bottom of the photograph but that’s just an accident.
A rather blunt steeple. Its almost like they wanted to build it higher but then gave up when the money ran out and squared it out. But see the similarities with Notre Dam in Paris? Similar squared off towers.
St. Thomas presumably.
Another view of the facade. Looks a bit lopsided to me.
Its a long building and the lopsidedness is even more evident here. But still, quite an imposing building. Here is the slideshow with some more photographs.
