"Architectural Gem"

New Yorkers, numbed by constant grandeur, too often pass architectural gems without noticing. However, buildings such as this one deserve special merit and attention. The Church of the Guardian Angel is a Roman Catholic place of worship reminiscent of early Romanesque architecture, a style emphasized by architect John Van Pelt, and modeled after the Clunic Abbey of Saint Peter in Moissac (France). The tympanum at the entrance is very ornate and it depicts a vivid story in stone about the life of Christ. In order to attend mass or other services, contact the website for more details.
