We were staying on 31st Street so this impressive old looking church was just around the corner from the hotel. Its architecture looks old but in fact it is not a very old building. The church is a very impressive NYC edifice. It is well...More

Another one of the many famous churches in New York, where many rich and famous got married in. The church is very old and has a nice architecture. The organ inside is very beautiful.

I went there for a tour after their services. They usually have a tour once a month, check the website. It is one of the oldest congregations dating back to the 1600's although this church location was built in the 1800's. Seems progressive.

My wife and I attended services, and we were extremely impressed with everyone there! It is, I believe the oldest church in America and where Norman Vincent Peale pastored for 52 years! The architecture is as beautiful as its members!
