Photo of the Day: First United Methodist Church, Westfield NJ

In late October, while I was down for the afternoon in Westfield, NJ, an affluent suburb of New York, my eyes were drawn to First United Methodist Church, so much so that I took this picture. Even in this bustling downtown, near a railroad underpass, this structure commands attention as it overlooks the intersection of North Avenue West and East Broad Street.

But it’s not just because it’s on a slight rise over the traffic. This Greek Revival structure has, in its present form, stood on this spot since 1968. It replaced another building for this faith community that had lasted 92 years.
