The Church of the Holy Innocents in the Garment District
Ironically, it is the improbable location is the factor that keeps the church alive. When the Church of the Holy Innocents was founded in 1866 the upward march of the 5th Avenue mansions had only begun and it would be two decades before the great newspaper houses would rise up on Greeley and Herald Squares a few blocks to the south.
The Church of the Holy Innocents remains a welcomed oasis of tranquility from a bustling Garment Center outside.
