St John The Divine Residential Towers (View Looking Up From Morningside Avenue) (June 2015)

026

View from downstairs alongside Morninside Park looking up at the new residential construction being built along the north wall of St John the Divine. The top of the building looks like it was angled intentionally to follow and complement the movement of the cathedral dome. From this park angle, the new towers look not that bad. They could have built it much higher (or maybe not). In Morningside Heights, Christianity seems to be holding its own in the city, architecturally speaking.
