Book-matched façades flanking a rotated entry tower is a common A-A type. And the interiors of these churches often have ninety-degree radial seating focused on the corner pulpit opposite the entrance. These can be traced back to two prototypes from the 1880s, one of which was either copyright or trademark protected. Then, flanking the auditorium on either the left or right (as is shown here), there is an adjacent Sunday School. Brooklyn’s South Reformed Church at Fourth Avenue and Fifty-fifth Street is gone, replaced by a modest block of apartments.
