The Riverside Church in the City of New York


An official Path Through History Site! The Riverside Church is an open and affirming interdenominational American Baptist and United Church of Christ church in New York City, famous for its elaborate Neo-Gothic architecture and its history of social justice. Modeled after the 13th Century cathedral in Chartres, France, and built by John D. Rockefeller Jr., the Riverside Church is a stunning gothic-inspired cathedral, welcome to all. Riverside’s 20-floor tower contains the 74-bell Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillon with the largest tuned bell in the world. Influential on America’s religious and political landscapes since 1930, Riverside is located where the Upper West Side meets Harlem. Tours of the bell tower are available.
