Misleading sentence[edit]

"There was a fire in 1865 which destroyed the roof, after which the two spires were removed." Well, yes, in the same sense that I was born after the Great Depression. The spires were removed in 1889, an entire generation after the fire. - Jmabel | Talk 06:11, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Romanesque Revival?[edit]

Dr. Hutton's Church on Second Avenue, from Robert N. Dennis collection of stereoscopic views.jpg

Certainly the church as it stands today looks rather Romanesque. But it was originally topped by two rather Gothic spires, as shown in this 19th century stereo card. - Jmabel | Talk 06:12, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

I think I've addressed both your comments in the expansion and rewrite I've just completed. Let me know if there are other problems. Beyond My Ken (talk) 05:06, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
