Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church

August 22nd, 2015

Built for the Polish community of Maspeth, this church was dedicated in 1913 and still maintains its Polish identity today.

Here's what the AIA Guide to New York City has to say about the building: "The voluptuous curvilinear verdigris copper steeple makes this church extraordinary. Disney must be jealous."

UPDATE (Oct. 11, 2017): Holy Cross is in the NY Times today: "23 Women Accuse Former Queens Priest of Abusing Them as Children".
