♱ The First Baptist Church is an intriguing architectural building that is wrought with Biblical symbolism. It was designed by architect George Keister, who also designed the Apollo Theater. The two different dates on the front signify when the congregation was formed (1745) and when the current church building was completed (1891).

Such a beautiful gothic revival spire, but it is always strange to see somthing like this not allowed the sky it reaches out for as it's backdrop...

@Sonja... From a different angle it has the East River as part of the backdrop =) At other angles, the sky is the backdrop.... Depends on one's POV.
