Riverside Church NYC


The Riverside church is situated at 120th Street and 490 Riverside Drive in New York City, Upper Manhattan neighborhood of Morning side Heights. It is famous for its large size and elaborate Neo-Gothic architecture . The church is very near to Grant's tomb (General Grant National Memorial).

The edifice is modeled after the 13th Century Gothic cathedral in Chartres, France. Its Gothic tower stands as a beacon to the world and continues to bring people with very different perspectives together. 



The Riverside Church is 100 feet wide and covers two city blocks. The tower, rising to a height of 392 feet, is the first of its kind to serve a functional purpose, providing 24 floors for the congregation's programs. Source : www.theriversidechurchny.org
