This morning I took a different route to work and went back in time. First it was back to 1846, with the consecration of Grace Church (Episcopal), which is located on modern day 10th and Broadway. The church was built in the style of Gothic revival–full of spires pointed arch, the ribbed vault and the flying buttress — so I slipped even further into the past.
This is a church that people walk past all the time without batting an eye. But if it were in London or Vienna no doubt Americans would treat it as a tourist attraction. It deserves a good look.
