In a rundown state. Even the stained glass windows look like they have been neglected for some time.

Saints Peter and Paul Church, North Beach, San Francisco, CA. 1970. Hasn’t changed much over the past few decades.
I thought I would post a view of a steeple* and another rooftop that looks much like a steeple. I don’t think I would want to be the person who re-roofs the secular steeple.
The church is located in Brooklyn Heights. Went on a walking tour of Brooklyn Heights that was fun and informative. Homer Fink ( the tour-name of our guide ). Brooklyn Heights has been the home for such writers as Arthur Miller and Truman Capote as well as many other historical figures over the years. Very picturesque neighborhood in Brooklyn. This church has no steeple. Apparently, in the past, it was in need of repairing or replacing and it was decided to just take it down and not replace.
From the rooftop of the Pemco parking garage on Eastlake Ave. another church comes into view. The cream colored building with the curved roofline used to be the Seattle School District‘s warehouse. Years ago I worked in this building for about 3 weeks one summer as I was going through a rather extended time between jobs. I worked swing shift with one other employee, who I rarely saw until the end of the shift, around 11:30pm each night.
