I never knew there was a Church in Times Square until a friend told me about it. The review that says it was built by Disney is false information. There is actually a large plaque inside the foyer showing who the former owner was and when it was built. This was an old stage theater converted into a church by... More

My husband and I are not Christians, but we love music, so we decided to visit this church in order to listen to the gospel choir that performs there. People there is really nice and they must be used to receive visitors because the first thing they ask is if you plan to stay for the whole ceremony or just... More

Times Square church is an amazing church. The building is beautiful. The choir is amazing and sounds beautiful. The word is taught with intense knowledge and makes you feel the presence of God inside us. The staff is so friendly, the pastor is a great teacher. Love going to praise, worship, learn the word, and just be in the presence... More

If you want to experience an active diverse church community with a great choir, attend a service at the Times Square Church. I know this church is listed on TripAdvisor as a tourist attraction but this place is first a church and visitors need to respect that. Most people there are there because they want to worship and visitors/tourists need... More

Yes it is a beautiful building, and the choir are wonderful - but most importantly this is a great church, preaching a great message. If you are in NYC go, you are made to feel very welcome, and will hear a positive message.

Super friendly, Fun, Exciting, Convenient, Awesome Music, Contemporary, and above all the Holy Spirt is there and it is a church that likes to help people feel His presence. It is not a traditional church....worth experiencing.

Stunning building, with amazing intricate detail on the ceilings etc. But the main reason for being here was to be blessed and uplifted and that is what earns the 5 star review. Look into the history of this place, the work of David Wilkerson in New York and the impact that God has had in NYC. Wonderful work being done... More

I love visiting Times Square Church. Every time I come here I can feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. Come here if you want true biblical preaching and an outpouring of the spirit. Pastor Carter Conlon is an encouraging biblical preacher that sticks to truth. Praise God!

Great praise music, good preaching, all in the context of an old Broadway Theater! What's not to like? But what I really enjoyed was the opportunity to worship amid the mosaic of all God's people who have migrated/come to visit NYC from all over the world! The service is at 10:00 AM, so you and the family can still sleep... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
