We were walking to Grant's Tomb from Columbia University when we came upon Riverside Church. It's a real presence in the neighborhood and attractive inside and out. The stained glass windows are a real highlight.

All I could describe is, it's a beautiful church. The Grant tomb nearby does not look as beautiful as this building.

We came here after visiting the Riverside Park and General Grant's tomb as they were near by. The exterior of the church is very majestic and the main entrance has many fine sculptures and carvings. The stained glass inside is very beautiful.
