You don't see many flying buttresses in the United States. They're common in Europe, especially England, France, and Italy, but not in the US. So, it is always pleasant to view the flying buttresses that are an integral part of the architectural design of St. Dominic's Church
The Carnegie Library is located at 351 9th Avenue in the Richmond District of San Francisco. It was opened to the public in 1912 and it was updated in 2009.
