Catholic Center at New York University

They leveled this 60s era structure last week. It faced Washington Square Park. A strange looking building that will be replaced by a blue glass monstrosity. That's progress!

wow, I never thought this would be destroyed, I had no idea... Oh well.

Brad said...

Wow, a cool piece of history lost. The building has an interesting design.

Jean Spitzer said...

Oh. I'm having trouble believing this church is gone.

Hilda said...

What?! But it's a fascinating piece of architecture! That's just awful! :(

Adam said...

Are the Catholic church big on blue glass monstrosities now then?

James said...

Another one bites the dust. The destruction of old buildings continues. I'm glad you take pictures before they go.

Jarart said...

That's just sad! Such an interesting building. Will the new one be as interesting? I doubt it.

As far as I can tell, architecture was not a Catholic strong suit in the Sixties. (Just my opinion.)

Jacob said...

Perhaps it was designed to look like a ship - to carry the faithful to the promised land.

No big loss, I think. It will be interesting to see the "blue glass monstrosity."

Who makes these decisions, anyway. Probably not the hoi polloi.

Good-bye SPACE 1999, we'll miss you!

for the time being, it's a nice hole in the ground! party!

It's not so much that it was a beautiful building, just that it differed from the huge NYU buildings on that side of the square. I guess it just didn't get quite old enough to become respectable.
