St. Paul’s Chapel in Lower Manhattan abides as New York’s oldest building in continuous public use, and as a symbol of faith, endurance, and social good. In this third lecture in a series celebrating the 250th anniversary year of St. Paul’s Chapel, architectural historian and author Tom Mellins will discuss the design and evolution of St. Paul's Chapel as a house of worship, an urban landmark, and a place of pilgrimage.
The lecture will be held on March 8th at 6 PM at St. Paul’s Chapel. Mellins will also explore the Chapel’s impact on Lower Manhattan and the emerging skyscraper city behind the building by chronicling architectural changes and preservation efforts over time.
