Madison Avenue United Methodist Church, East Harlem, NYC

Located at 1723 Madison Avenue surrounded by several public housing projects is the Madison Avenue United Methodist Church. It was built in 1967 for the New York Society of the Methodist Church. The architect was Edgar Tafel, who died in 2011 and is a favorite of this blog having been previously covered here, here and here. His work is known for its modest, integrating style which fits in seamlessly with the existing streetscape. Here, the low-structure is brown brick with clerestory windows and topped by a shingle covered mansard, receding among its taller neighbors.
