Central Park Ward

Built in 1926, the Central Park Ward chapel is a great example of the Prairie style of architecture.

The main difference now is that steeple. The more chapels I visit, the more I'm convinced that someone in the Church Building Department is ordering that every chapel have a steeple, because nothing says 'I'm a church' like a steeple. The thing is, a building can still look like a very nice church without a steeple, and a steeple on this building is absolutely confusing (although they did it a bit better than in some other cases, like the Salt Lake 17th Ward's steeple.)
