Church for the New Jerusalem

Rittenhouse District 30
New Jerusalem

Return to Locust Street, turn right and right again on 22nd Street. Three blocks down to the Church for the New Jerusalem (Swedenborgian). Its crenelated towers and turrets and soot-stained granite give it a highly romantic Gothic appearance. The red sandstone exterior of 32 South 22nd Street opposite has cut into it the legend "Anno Domini MDCCCLXXXVIII," a childlike mermaid and the heads of angels.
