Question: is 
https://www.google.com/maps/@42.7408471,-73.7805254,132a,35y,69.19h,53.87t/data=!3m1!1e3 
a building=church? AFAIK it was constructed as a "church" (as a place of 
worship, anyway), but if you took down the signage and started to use it 
for another purpose, there would be no evidence that it ever used to be 
a place of worship; the construction *style* is absolutely *not* what is 
typically associated with a "church".

Compare with 
https://www.google.com/maps/@42.6822058,-73.840315,35a,35y,225.94h,69.88t/data=!3m1!1e3, 
which still looks almost entirely generic from above, but at least has 
*some* features of a "traditional church".

Possibly something like 
https://www.google.com/maps/@43.4139398,-84.0322268,53a,35y,89.44h,48.46t/data=!3m1!1e3 
...?
