St. Paul, Norwalk

This was a very good design at one time. The spire added a much needed vertical focus and the little turrets softened the rather angular corners. The color contrast between tan and red stone is a good touch.
I'm afraid it's been badly handled. The removal of the spire and turrets make it look squat and boxy. That tower cap is a disaster.
I've been told the interior is done in shades of orange. Let's wait until I have pictorial evidence. Hard to believe anyone could do something quite that stupid.
