City of Churches visits the 90-year-old San Giuseppe Church on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and its unique collection of religious statues. Join host Anthony Mangano as he traces the roots of this historic neighborhood back from the days when George Washington slept here to its eventual decline. It changed from a business district to a haven for poor immigrants whose donations built this church nearly a century go. Highlights include rare vintage photographs documenting this neighborhood as it looked 100 years ago, the story of the “Four Girls From Cherry Street”, recent footage of the 125 year old St. Rocco procession, and a unique relic.
The Emmy Award-winning City of Churches explores and documents the local history, art and architecture that clearly illustrate why New York City is known as the “City of Churches.” Series host Anthony Mangano uncovers places, people and memories inspired by these architectural wonders and their surrounding neighborhoods. Join us as we explore some of the beautiful churches in New York City. The spotlight may be on your parish next!
