  • Majestic and beautiful building of the Gothic church is one of the most beautiful places in New York. Though it is far from the main attractions, if there is time to visit stands, not regret.

  • 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.

  • My review is completely based as a tourist to this church. First of all, if you are tired entering those church in Europe that requires an admission fee, you should definitely try this one. So relaxing, so welcoming, nothing is locked, and nobody is going to ask you what are you here for. Just enjoy a ten minutes divine moment. Secondly, the church has a school "attached to the building", students and staff here are super nice. They are so welcome that someone just enter for restroom and a sip of water is fine. Absolutely incredible place to give yourself a moment to think.
  • 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.
  • Grand exteriors! Gives a good feeling
  • Incredibly beautiful cathedral, it's a pity that you need to reserve in advance to get to the top
  • 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!
