Our Lady of Pompeii Church

Commanding the all-important intersection of Bleecker and Carmine Streets, Our Lady of Pompeii utilizes a neo-classical style and an asymmetrically placed tower to frame the view across what is now Father Demo Square.  By the time Our Lady of Pompeii Church was built in 1929, Italian-Americans had established themselves in this neighborhood for several generations, and the grand church reflects this level of establishment.
