Colonial/Neo-Colonial - St. Paul's Chapel

"You probably imagine cities like Boston and Philadelphia when you think of colonial architecture—traditional, European-influenced structures built (or made to look like they were built) during the period between 1600 and 1800. But New York, a major colonial power back in the day, still boasts its fair share of these buildings, particularly in lower Manhattan. Common features include stone, brick, or wood cladding; pitched roofs; and symmetrical designs. Like most styles, colonial experienced waves of revival, notably in the 1870s and 1930s; there are also many variations, including Georgian, Federalist, Cape Cod, and French colonial.

NOTABLE EXAMPLES: 726 Madison Avenue (Morrell Smith); 1130 Fifth Avenue (Delano & Aldrich); St. Paul’s Chapel (Thomas McBean); St. Mark’s-in-the-Bowery (Ithiel Town); American Academy of Dramatic Arts (Stanford White), Gracie Mansion (John McComb Jr.).”
