Midtown Walk Part II

My aimless walk from MoMA took me past some buildings that I had seen many times before, and it was a nice surprise to find this one open. St Bartholemew's Church was design by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue in 1913 (with a front portico designed by Stanford White). A byzantium landmark on Park Avenue:

The narthex houses the church shop and has amazing mosaic ceiling vaults:

It was pretty dim in the sanctuary, but still quite remarkable:

St Bart's-003

The mix and match columns at the choir:
