"It is home to the Burke Theological Library which is second only to the Vatican's Apostolic Library in the scope of its collection."

This statement needs some support or reference -- what criteria are being measured here? (anon.)

The necessary modifying criterion I can think of is "in printed materials". --Wetman 12:06, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

"Bird's-eye view at Claremont Ave. & 122nd St." as a brief snippet of information for the second photograph is wrong, however, I am unsure as to how to correct it because simply clicking the edit tab for the page does not bring up the ability to edit the information grouped with the pictures. As for the picture in question, instead of pointing south, the camera is actually pointing north from between 120th and 119. This can be figured out because it is the chapel of Union that is the main focal point of the picture, but the chapel is south of the tower in the picture, as it is in reality. Also, you can see to the very right of the picture, barely edging its way in, is a section of a building belonging to Barnard, which is also south of Union. So someone with a little more technical expertise than I can fix this mislabeling to read, "Bird's-eye view at Claremont Ave., between 120th and 119th" or something like that (although technically, the picture is also not exactly on Claremont, but rather between Claremont and Riverside - but thats just splitting split hairs I suppose).

Doh, I figured it out. It was right in front of me. I've made the necessary changes. Flyingfarther 05:16, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Design sources for the tower[edit]

"Crossing tower of Durham Cathedral isn't accurate. For more likely comparisons, see, for example St Mary Magdalene, Taunton, and the later 15th-century illustrations to the List of towers in Somerset.--Wetman (talk) 16:54, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

WP:COMMONNAME[edit]

I created a redirect from Union Theological Seminary, New York to here. But actually it probably was the wrong thing to do. Looking at WP:RS and WP:Commonname the mouthful "Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York" probably isn't the commonname. It's done now, but anyone feel free to RM.

Incorrect title[edit]

The official name of this institution is Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York. That should be the title, since the colloquial "Union Theological Seminary" has multiple WP pages. I'm going to make a bold move. Carrite (talk) 15:48, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

I was unable to move. Carrite (talk) 15:49, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
