    This church was my favorite of the trip. It's way less grandiose than nearby Trinity Church yet has an even more amazing story behind it. Definitely worth a stop.

    The memorial at ground zero has left a lasting impression on me and only increased my sense of solidarity, even though I'm not an American or have any sort of deeper story or connection to the events, other than the common sadness and shock everyone felt around the world. I liked the quietness, the messaging and the symbolism of the memorial and felt the execution of it very dignified and tasteful.

    I had the joy and honor of attending a conversation with Lin-Manuel Miranda and others in this beautiful temple. I was pretty far back, but I could still hear and see everything clearly. It was a popular enough event that the lines to get in wrapped around the building, but once it got moving, it was pretty fast.

    St. Bartholomew’s Church, commonly called St. Bart’s is a beautifully designed house of worship and a major attraction worth visiting when traveling to New York.

    In November of 2018, I brought myself and my wife for a visit of St Bart’s, and we were both captivated by its Byzantine exterior design and its gorgeous stained glass windows.

    We also enjoyed viewing and taking pictures of the church’s altar and the depiction of the Last Supper, which is located in the baptismal chamber north of the altar.

    Designed by renowned architect by Bertram Goodhue, and the venerable architectural firm, Mckim Mead & White in the early 20th Century, , St. Bart’s has been featured in multiple films and television shows ranging from the 1981 & 2010 film version of Arthur, the 1995 movie, It Takes Two & the television series, Mad Men.

    Due to its famous and revered design and its important heritage, St. Bart’s is listed on the National Register Of Historic Places, and has been designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark & a NYC landmark.

    Both my wife and I highly recommend for everyone to visit this beautiful church when traveling to Manhattan, New York!!!

    Riverside Church is a magnificent structure and an inspiring house of worship, especially when they have the handbell and choir concerts. The Church is situated adjacent to a park along the Hudson River offering a wonderful sunny day outside venue.

    Grace Church is an 1846 Gothic Revival masterpiece that stands at the corner of Broadway and 10th in Manhattan. It's architect was James Renwick Jr. at the tender age of 23 years old. The same architect that would later distinguish himself by building St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC, as well as other projects. It has an attractive interior and lovely altar. Worth a visit.

    Really nice and peaceful little church that is moments from the chaos of Times Square. It has some repairs going on outside.

    The Mahayana temple is located at the entrance to Manhattan Bridge. The building is somewhat plain from the exterior. Worth a look inside.

    The Church of Transfuguration is a strange looking building that sits amongst a lot of skyscrapers. It’s highly unusual.

    Attending the service on Easter Sunday was a great experience! What a friendly congregation who loves Christ and shares the Gospel<3

    The pastor acknowledged the visitors, was thankful for our participation during the service and our offering to the church. The worship was real and alive, and the preaching was just as you would imagine in a black church - charismatic! The congregation only held about 40 members, whereas the rest of the nave was filled with visitors. However, many of these tourists left during the service, which I found disturbing.

    I would have hoped that an estimated duration of the service would have been announced initially. Additionally, if the song texts had been available and the worship had one/more psalms which are known throughout the world, it would have been easier to participate - not only see a tourist attraction.
