Sweet City Sign – To The Calvary

I also never heard of Calvary before:

“according to the Gospels, a site immediately outside Jerusalem’s walls where Jesus was crucified. Golgotha is the Greek transcription in the New Testament of an Aramaic term that has traditionally been presumed to be Gûlgaltâ. The Bible translates the term to mean place of [the] skull, which in Greek is (Kraníou Tópos), and in Latin is Calvariæ Locus, from which the English word Calvary is derived.”

It’s from the side of Saint Mary Mother of God church at 727 5th St, NW in Chinatown.
