So close to Times Square, if you want a break in a truly lovely, peaceful setting, stop by here. When you enter, look up at the blue, star-studded ceiling. It's magical. Then take a seat or stroll around to look at the chapels. It will...More

We have been here many times, usually to hear the Christmas Music provided by the Miller Theater. Most recently we were here last night to hear the Tallis Scholars sing Arvo Part, John Shepherd and parts of a wonderful medieval mass by Tallis. The concert...More

Don't let the scaffolding scare you away because this church is stunning inside. It's called Smokey Mary's because they use a lot of incense at mass, but it is a lovely respite if you're waiting for someone before a theater date or if you're staying...More

I want to clarify a comment made by another visitor, who said "The 'Sinners, Repent' brochures are a little unnerving." The message was actually "Sinners, Repaint"! For several years St. Mary's was raising money for a major paint job. It's been done, and the "Sinners,...More

This is a small but peaceful church located very close to Times Square. Once you get inside it's surprisingly quiet and is probably a good place for worship if that's your thing. Both the exterior and interior are quite attractive.

Considering this church is steps away from Times Square, it is amazingly quiet -- a beautiful sanctuary that emulates French Gothic architecture well. The "repent sinners" brochures are a little unnerving, but at the same time, they have a pamphlet offering visitors a self-guided tour....More

This is a truly beautiful Anglican style Episcopal Church located right in the Times Square Area. Very "Catholic' styling including massive votive light area, magnificent alter and appropriate statues throughout. Their services are VERY "High Church" and the liturgy is quite beautiful.
