Riverside Church

The resplendent Riverside Church in New York City‘s Morningside Heights neighbourhood is as famed for its architecture as it is for its social rights advocacy. Inspired by 13th century French cathedrals, construction on the neo-Gothic church began in 1927. Commissioned by oil baron John D. Rockefeller and minister Harry Emerson Fosdick as an interdenominational American Baptist and United Church of Christ, it is the tallest church in the U.S. Through the years, the church has attracted speakers including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Bill Clinton, Jesse Jackson, Cesar Chavez, and Nelson Mandela.

  • Explore the outside and inside of this elaborate and elegant New York City church and do not miss the artwork, which includes Flemish stained glass windows and paintings by Heinrich Hoffman which were purchased by John D. Rockefeller.
  • Attend one of the 120 annual dance, drama, and music performances given by the Riverside Theatre, including some of New York City’s most thought-provoking social pieces and documentaries.
  • Enjoy the Sunday worship services as well as the carillon recitals and inspirational music performed by the Riverside Church’s Riverside Choir, which also has several recordings available on CD.

The Riverside Church is located close to where the Upper West Side and Harlem meet. The best way to get to the church is to take the subway (#1 IRT Broadway Local) to 116th Street. Visitors can also take the #2 or #3 IRT Broadway Express from Midtown, but need to change to the local train at 96th Street. By bus, lines M-104, M-4, and M-5 stop at 120th or 122nd Street. There is paid parking at the Claremont Avenue Garage, located below the church on 120th Street. Taxis are also plentiful in New York City.
