I've been several times, and it is always a joy! The music is amazing, and preaching great, too. Beautiful venue! Sit in the balcony with the other tourists, or arrive early to get a seat downstairs with the regulars. Friendly folks!

Even for those who don't believe in God or find Jesus a abstract conceipt, you can only find it inspriring. One of the best choir you can find, and feel the spirituality all around here. You have to do that if you have time, and visit Brooklyn, because that's what's reak :)

The Christmas play was fantastic. Somehow they found outstanding vocals, great actors, very good dancers and choreography all from that small town! Who would have thunk it? We arrived an hour before time and was in a line that stretched almost completely around the block but no problem as seating held 4800 or so and they had overflow seating across... More

We attended the Christmas show service on the Sunday before Christmas Day - and what a treat it was. We were not familiar with the experience of lining up to go to church, or being seated 45 minutes before the service begins - but are so glad we did. Everyone was so friendly, and we enjoyed meeting people near us... More

This place is an experience that will lift and encourage you through worship. My wife and I went for Sunday service and felt it was one of the high lights of our New York trip. The other notable thing was this church's commitment to loving others locally, nationally, and internationally. I would highly encourage anyone to visit.

The opportunity to worship with these wonderful believers and staff will forever be the highlight of our NYC visit. Each future NYC trip over a weekend will include a visit to Brooklyn Tab.
