Riverside Church (c. 1930)

Riverside Church was built with Rockefeller money in the 1930's. Those of you who are familiar with our neigbhorhood will notice that there is a minature golf course (!) where a church building now stands. Note the lack of trees in Riverside Park, now thickly forested. The building on the right is Union Theological Seminary, and the one on the left at rear is Grant's Tomb.
