1st Round Draft Choice: The Archdiocese of New York





As I have mentioned, we are contemplating a publication of photographic history of the churches and chapels of Archdiocese of New York City. I have toured extensively in Manhattan and a bit in the Bronx, and have had numerous conversations with interested participants, but I think it would be fantastic to get some group interaction from the readers here. Here is a partial list



Old St. Pats
St. Malachy's
The original Manhattanvile College of the Sacred Heart (City College/Harlem) Is it still there? Eglise de Notre Dame 405 W. 114th
Catherine of Siena 411 E. 68th
Francis de Sales 135 E. 96th
St Francis Xavier 30 W. 16th St.
Jean Baptiste 184 E76th
St. Peters Barclay Street?
St. Thomas More 65 E. 89th
Fordham Chapel
Our Lady of Pompei 25 Carmine St.
Our Lady of the Rosary 7 State Street
St. Vincent de Paul 123 West 23rd St
St. Pats Cathedral
St Vincent Ferrer
St. Ignatius Loyola
St. Andrews (pictured btw)


So have at it...what 75 Churches and Chapels should be photographed for "Heavenly City: The Architectural Tradition of Catholic New York"....?

St. Anselms is a beautiful and unique example of beuronese art. It is a masterpiece in need of minimal restoration. It is in the bronx.
