  • Beautiful and imposing church located on the border of the Upper West Side to Harlem. Unfortunately was under construction when we went (September 2016). Ideal for siding with the tour by General Grant National Memorial and Columbia University. Get off at the subway station 116 St.

  • Adjacent to riverside park lies this enormous Gothic church, although the interior of the ship is smaller than expected since it houses restaurants and other services, his huge bell tower houses one of the largest carillons (or largest) in the world with 72 bells, unfortunately, although the church website announce it The Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillon rang not announced hours Sunday.

  • If you're up on the upper West Side visiting Columbia, Barnard, and Grant's Tomb, make sure that you include a visit to Riverside Church. This place is unbelievable. The architecture is, to me, far mo...  read more »
  • Stay away! I am from California and we do not practice suicidal Christianity there. This Church has been subverted by evil forces that urge us to be "tolerant" of Muslims as they slaughter Christians globally in record numbers. I think 1,500 years of "tolerating" christian beheadings is long enough. Ask yourselves, would loving and tolerating Hitler have caused him to stop killing? If loving Muslims will stop terrorism, why are global terrorist attacks up by 400% since Obama took office? This is not Christianity. This is suicidal madness. This Church wants us to disarm ourselves; I will keep my guns and defend myself and my family from ALL evil forces, thank you very much! Once again, this Church has been subverted by forces who do NOT want Christians to prosper or defend themselves.
  • Stunning cathedral. Dominates the New York City skyline from the North. They provide many cultural institutions a home. If you ever get a chance to attend a concert in the 10th floor concert space, do so. Magnificent views.
  • Stunning steeple and beautiful garden adjacent. Went to service once here and it was nice.
  • An organ /choir concert in this stunning cathedral is absolutely divine.
  • My family is blessed to have and be a part of this church over the years. It is the best place for ceremonies, worship, and a sanctuary--I am so grateful for it!
