Church of St. Matthew and St. Timothy, Upper West Side, NYC

A dramatic mid-block church completed in 1970 following the destruction of the previous church by fire. The architect is Victor Christ-Janer, who also designed religious structures in New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont and Minnesota among others. It reminds me of another striking mid-block concrete church which replaced a more traditional structure. This website has an older picture of the exterior and one of the interior. The facade is covered by numerous doors, crevices, and different levels of entry.
