  Union Theological Seminary from Sakura Park
by mrclay2000

Across the street from the Riverside Church is a series of buildings that included with the cathedral give these blocks that medieval tone. Founded in 1836 but not built here until 1910, the Union Theological Seminary boasts several Gothic structures. Some of these are the fancy towers with all the Gothic details, and others are mere two- and three-story outbuildings of stone with severely modest windows (as if glass were ultraexpensive), exactly like one might see on a 14th century campus. Certain buildings are closed to outsiders and non-scholars, but the views from the street are free.
