    This is an incredible piece of history and so emotional.
    The only building in the area to escape with no damage not even a broken window.
    Such a focus of sanctuary on that terrible day.
    So much to see and absorb , well worth paying for a tour so you don't miss anything.
    Wow !

    So pleased we visited this lovely church. It is close to the 9/11 Memorial Museum and thankfully survived that infamous day. Be prepared to go through airport Like security. First time I have experienced that in a place of worship. The volunteers and people employed there were very helpful and professional. Lit candles for friends and family both here and passed. Would recommend for quiet reflection. Donations welcome.

    It's the largest cathedral I've ever seen. We stopped after seeing this huge building to take some snaps of it during the city tour.

    By far the most beautiful cathedral in the world. You cannot find a more perfect mix anywhere in the world. It’s in “the concrete jungle” that we call NYC, yet it kept a classic, gentle, historic feel to it. The stained glass (as an artist) is absolutely stunning. The details inside are incredible. Must see location for sure!

    It's a very impressive church - plenty big enough to be a cathedral but it doesn't have side chapels. I think this was why it felt weird to me. But the windows are beautiful, as is the reredos. Definitely worth a visit.

    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.

    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.

    The architecture outside and inside the church is quite impressive. The stained-glass windows are quite beautiful. It is worth taking a few minutes to go inside and take a few pictures.

    This was the first Church we've visited ever in New York and what a sight to be seen.

    The Central Synagogue in New York City is on Lexington Avenue in the Midtown area of Manhattan.

    From the outside it is a trying magnificent building with lots of intricate parts. It is really nice to admire.

    An amazing edifice on the Upper West Side. The church is an architectural jewel, with classic art work. However, the most attractive element is the care of the local clergy. Founded by Isaac Hecker, their sermons and liturgies are sensitive, contemporary, and engaging.
    If you wake up early while visiting Manhattan, and you would like to start your day off with prayer, consider a visit.

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

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