St. Matthew’s is just one of many closed German Lutheran churches left scattered around the city.
It’s a nice example of a German Gothic Hallkirche, where the buttresses are attached and there is no transept.
Look at those little flying buttresses in the tower.
Fascinatingly, the rectory is built into the roofline of the church, giving the impression at first glance that the residence is the transept of the building. The former Nativity of Our Lord Roman Catholic Church in Walnut Park has a similar design.
