William Reed Huntington.Grace Church NYC.Alex Lozupone

Father Huntington was the rector of Grace Church, New York, in its heyday the most fashionable church in the city. Designed in 1843 by an inexperienced, little known architect named James Renwick, Jr. – a nephew of the man who owned the land it was built on – this example of French Gothic Revival has long been considered a masterpiece. It is part of a parish complex, including school, rectory and neighborhood house, given landmark status; the church itself is on the National Register. (Alex Lozupone)
