See the beauty
The present location of St. Bartholomew's which opened in 1918, is actually its third location in New York City. Its famous dome and the majority of its interior decorations were added between 1929 and 1930, while the adjacent Community House is believed to date back from 1972. The style of the present church was chosen based on the need for harmony for the Romanesque portal with its three sets of bronze doors (a part of the previous church) and they desire for a space where the preacher could be heard and seen by everyone.
