Photo of the Day: Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Englewood NJ

I took the attached photo in the first week of December, on an extended walk around my hometown of Englewood.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—i.e., the Mormon Church—opened a facility elsewhere in Englewood in 2001, but this faith community required a new location because of inadequate parking and an expanded congregation. The site in this picture, on East Forest Avenue, was dedicated in 2012 and opened a couple of years later.

The meetinghouse is environmentally friendly, including energy-efficient rooftop gardens, a recycling system that reduces wastewater, and advanced control systems for lighting and thermal comfort. Its members come not just from Englewood, but also Englewood Cliffs, Teaneck, Hackensack, Fort Lee, Bogota, Leonia and Ridgefield Park.
