Walking by St Paul, St Andrew, and St Ignatius of Antioch

Awhile back I caught a show over by the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Along the way, I passed by 2 interesting churches that were right on top of each other and took a few exterior shots. The first one is the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew. The second is St. Ignatius of Antioch and both are located on West End Ave between 86th and 87th St. The interesting thing is that SP&SA is a Methodist Church, while SIoA is Episcopal and they are right on top of each other. In fact, I didn’t realize these were two separate churches until I looked them up back home.

Eventually I should go back and do some interiors.

Next week: Let’s do an animal study, and since they never put on a show like I saw the other week, we shall look at the snow leopards of the Bronx Zoo!
