Riverside Church

The Riverside Church in the City of New York is an interdenominational (American Baptist and United Church of Christ) church in New York City, famous not only for its elaborate Gothic architecture—which includes the world's largest tuned carillon bell—but also as a center for the promotion of progressive causes. It is located in Harlem btw Riverside Drive and Claremont Avenue and btw 120th Street and 122nd Street. The tallest church in the United States and the 26th tallest in the world, it was described by The New York Times in 2008 as "a stronghold of activism and political debate throughout its 75-year history ... influential on the nation’s religious and political landscapes."[1] The church received New York City Landmark status in 2000.


Thank you for visiting otsoNY, a free service since 2009. We have lots of ideas to help increase the awareness of the website as well as development new features such a Virtual Tour Guide, a Film Location App for your mobile and a otsoNY Hardback Book, but none of this is possible without financial backing. Our overhead costs such as hosting, server space and support maintenance have also increased over the years and otsoNY is now at risk of shutting down without financial help. Any donations are much appreciated to keep otsoNY online.
