Though today they are dwarfed by skyscrapers, the spires of churches and synagogues once dominated the New York skyline. This breathtaking survey of sixty-five historic places of worship (all constructed between 1698 and 1935) features full-color exterior and interior photos of the landmarks alongside lively text detailing the architectural, historical, and cultural significance of each building. Travel from Lower Manhattan's Trinity Church (once George Washington's home church) north to the Upper West Side's Congregation Shearith Israel (North America's first synagogue) and on up to Harlem's famed Mother African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church (which boasts Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglass, and Harriet Tubman among its past members). From rustic country chapels to ornate synagogues, Divine New York offers a unique armchair tour of the Big Apple, and of the country.
