Saint Thomas Church, 5th Avenue New York

Explore FP # 6. Thanks to all of you.

 

For the gory details, view large on black

Friends, here is another church interior shot. This is the St. Thomas Church on 5th Avenue in New York. Completed in 1913, the church is built in the French High Gothic style. Except for its length, Saint Thomas is of cathedral proportions, with the nave vault rising 95 feet above the floor. The church is built completely of stone, according to medieval construction principles. The size, spacing, and number of columns and arches are precisely what is necessary to support the structure - and give it the unique acoustical properties associated with churches built of the same materials and in the same way during the Middle Ages.
