4. Strong Place Baptist Church: This church in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, was designed by one of America’s most famous church architects: Minard Lafever. Four of his buildings have been named National Historic Landmarks, not including the church, which has since been converted into a condominium suitably called The Landmark at Strong Place, which contains 23 units of varying size and layout.
