10. The Bronx – Riverdale Presbyterian Church
The Gothic Revival-styled Riverdale Presbyterian Church has many iconic features that set it apart, from its red door to its towering steeple. Designed by James Renwick Jr, the architect of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the smallpox hospital on Roosevelt Island and many other structures, it was designated a New York City Landmark in 1966.
The church was formed by five local business owners, William Earl Dodge, Jr., Robert Colgate, Samuel W. Dodge, J. Joseph Eagleton and John Mott, in 1863.The site will be open on Sunday for self-guided tours from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm.
