Modern Greek Orthodox (Looks Nothing Like a Church) (Saint Mary Magdalen Orthodox Church)

002 003 004

This charming little place off Columbus Avenue on W. 107th Street in New York looks nothing like a church. I like the website which you can see here. It’s modest and unpretentious, with nothing imposing about it. Unlike the simple building facade, the art inside is very distinctive. Brick, steel, and glass, the feel is comfortable and modern. That’s what a church (or synagogue)  should look like.
