Orchard Church

Three blocks from our house is Orchard Street (a very short and very wide street) the home of the stone Gothic-Revival (just the architectural style, not the theology) Saint Martin's Episcopal Church, designed by Wallis Howe in 1917. To the right is a limestone rectangle of a theological neighbor, the modernist building that is Temple Beth El, which I believe Superman's mom attended.

  1. Cool to see a picture of St. Martin's here--my father, Halsey DeW. Howe, was minister in the 60s and early 70s; his father Wallis designed the church and the house next to it on Orchard Ave where we lived. Gramps designed the church and house years before my father was born.
