Overview

Arranged in the form of an alphabetical encyclopedia, this work profiles the architecture of churches, past and present, in the city of New York. Only consciously excluding storefront and parlorfront congregations, the author includes photographs and illustrations of the various church structures in the city alongside text describing brief histories of the buildings. Entries are listed by congregation, with many entries profiling the changes in structures over the course of a congregation's history. Although the material is presented alphabetically, a geographic guide is also included should the reader wish to use the text as a guidebook. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
