IMG_0918

Dating from 1972 is St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. The church is located in the Flushing neighborhood in Queens. It was designed by Raymond & Rado & Partners, a firm which consisted of Antonin Raymond, a Czech architect, much more well-known in Japan for his work on Frank Lloyd Wright’s projects and for his own early Japanese modernism. His business partner, Ladislav Rado, was based in New York and probably was responsible for the design here. This project dates toward the end of their firm’s existence.
