Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, East Village, NYC

Here is another Edgar Tafel-designed religious structure, this one from 1969. Some of Tafel’s work, especially later buildings present an extreme modesty, almost utilitarianism, perhaps reflecting his work with low-income congregations or his interest in contextualism. The Emmanuel Presbyterian Church is located on East 6th Street between Avenues C and D. The facade is clad in brick with concrete accents and a tile band at the cornice line.

    Really interesting looking building! It almost looks like it has been tilted on its side! I like it!
