We stopped by the church to light candles and say prayers. We unexpectedly arrived during a church service so we were able to participate in the prayers. Very special place in the heart fo Manhattan!

This was our second favorite thing to see on our trip to NYC! It will amaze you! Don’t forget to walk all the way to the front and behind... secret chapel in the back!

i believe that there is a check place. Security is tight. Your bags will be checked prior to entering. Sign of the times.
