One of the extraordinary buildings we saw on the recent Ditmas Park – Flatbush FNY tour was the original parish house for the Flatbush-Tompkins Congregational Church on East 18th Street just off Dorchester Road. The church itself is a later construction dating to 1910.

The multi-dormered Shingle Style building dates to 1899. It has multiple angles and “sides” and if this form were carried out for the full diameter of the building it would have sixteen sides, making it a hexadecagon.
