Pacific Street

News came over the summer that the Church of the Redeemer, at Fourth & Pacific, was slated for demolition. Community efforts are underway to try & save the historic Gothic Revival church. Until yesterday, I had no idea that the church's name is set in gold, in the tiles of the Pacific  St. subway station, just steps underground from the building itself. I guess I usually exit at the eastern side of Fourth, and miss this altogether.  What other city churches are recognized this way?

Finding unfamiliar things in familiar places is one thing I'll really miss about New York. I love tile art.
