St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church is located on Christopher Street in New York’s Greenwich Village. The building, one of the oldest in The Village, was constructed in 1821-22 for the Eighth Presbyterian Church, then served as home for St. Matthew’s Episcopal Parish for 16 years starting in 1842. In 1858, it was purchased by German Lutherans.
I took this photo this past winter, on my way to a theater in the area. I was especially struck by the church's symmetry, so characteristic of the Federal style, and its distinctive domed cupola.
