Impressions - The Riverside Church in the City of New York

The Riverside Church in the City of New York covers two city blocks and is located in New York City's Upper West Side near Columbia University and the Morningside and Harlem communities. The church was built 1927-1930 and is modeled after the 13th Century gothic cathedral in Chartres, France.

Today this interdenominational church has 2400 members and the Church Nave seats over 2,100 worshippers. The tower has twenty-four floors containing meeting rooms as well as the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillon. The Carillon has 74 bells and its 20-ton Bourdon Bell is the largest turned bell in the world. The Riverside Church Tower is the first of its kind to serve a functional purpose.

Here are the photographs we took of the Church in April, 2005:
