St. Jean Baptiste Church

New York, USA

St. Jean Baptiste Catholic Church on New York City's Upper East Side was designed by Italian architect Nicholas Serracino. The architect combined elements of the Italian Renaissance Revival and Classical Revival architectural styles, and he won first prize for the design at the Esposizione Internazionale delle Industrie e del Lavore in Turin, in 1911. The building, which opened in the spring of 1913, is faced in limestone. Its west (front) facade is rich in ornament. The stained glass windows and high altar were brought to New York from Chartres, France and Italy, respectively, following World War I.
