The Astor Cross | Ask Trinity Archives

Reaching almost forty feet toward the sky, with more than a dozen characters from the Bible represented, the Astor Cross is a century-old feature of Trinity’s north churchyard. It’s also part of the architectural legacy of a famous family of (mostly) Trinity parishioners as we learn in this final segment of a three-part series on the Astors.
