Best Stained Glass Windows 

First Presbyterian Church of Alameda

According to an article in the Oakland Tribune, Alameda has more stained glass per capita than any other city in the United States. One local aficionado has photos of stained glass from more than 1,500 restored Victorians on the island. Alameda's Twin Towers Methodist Church gets a solid honorable mention for its classic stained glass, but is edged out by First Presbyterian Church, which has so many old-school windows that they "may distract a viewer from other fine architectural details," according to the city's Historical Advisory Board. They were recently restored to their eye-rattling brilliance, and ten out of fourteen panels depict the life of Jesus from his early ministry through his death and beyond. Check them out some sunny Sunday morning.
