Kirkpatrick is a quiet place to visit at Rutgers, one of the more historic buildings at the university. It would be nice if the buildings' portraits and stained glass included more explanation on site, but it's still a place to stop and reflect. Plus it's...More

Outstanding example of old, gothic church with fantastic stained glass windows. Its a big part of history for Old Queens. The annual Christmas concert cannot be beat.
