About The Landmark

The Eglise de Notre Dame or Church of Notre Dame in Morningside Heights, began in 1910 as a mission chapel serving French-speaking Catholics. It was later expanded in 1914 by architects Cross & Cross. The Church and rectory were both designated City Landmarks in 1967.

The impressive French neoclassical exterior is equally matched with the interior that boasts an unusual feature … a replica of the grotto in Lourdes France, where in 1858 Saint Bernadette was said to have witnessed the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
