On a quiet corner of Carroll Gardens is a commanding structure -- . Nestled comfortably among brownstone and brick row houses is the Neo-Gothic Church, built in 1904 and still serving a congregation of approximately 300 people.
The church's doors were open all afternoon yesterday, and to go inside such an impressive and vast building, in a place like New York City where real estate is expensive and apartments small, was a little like entering another world. The ceilings were high and painted with gold, the pews shiny, the stained glass windows bright. Even if you aren't religious, it's hard to take issue with the beauty.
