Question by Kelly D: St. Thomas Church in NYC?
I was walkin in NYC a few days ago and I noticed the building right next to the church is #666…..any idea why? Is this a coincidence or did someone mean to do that. Also , Iv never heard anyone else mention this fact, Do not many people know about this?
Answer by Jamerican Steve LOL. We know of it and any new visitor using the 53rd Street Station.
It is luck (or the lack thereof) that the street number is close by.
What spooky is St. Thomas in Fairlawn, OH with phone number is (330) 666-8006.
Question by ANON: Leipzig: Looking for the St. Thomas Church Hall?
Hi. I am interesting in going to see a concert on Wednesday night in Leipzig, Germany; I was wondering whether anyone could decipher the following address? –
Parish hall of St. Thomas Church
Matthai House – Dittrichring 12 / Leipzig
I know of the Thomaskirche of course, but I wondered if this was just a different place?
Sorry and thanks in advance,
Answer by Nemesis Yes, it is a different place. If you know the Thomaskirche, Dittrichring 12 is, as the crow flies, half way between Zum Arabischen Coffe Baum and the Thomaskirchhof. If you come down the Großer Fleischergasse, go past the level at which you would turn left to Zum Arabischen, and then Dittrichring 12 is about half way from that point, again on your left, before you reach the Thomaskirchhof and St Thomas itself.
If you go to http://maps.google.de and query Dittrichring 12 Leipzig you will see the layout exactly.
