Amidst the chaotic and convoluted Manhattan lies a church called St. Malachy known also as "actors' chapel" due to its proximity in the Broadway theater district. The church architecture is Gothic styled similar with St. Patrick Cathedral. The difference is that this Catholic church is...More

Beautiful little church tucked into the theater district. Looks like the city built itself around the church. Great acoustics and cantor, not surprising considering the city and talent pool in the area. St Patrick's is beautiful and nice to see, but there's too much drama...More
