Abyssinian Baptist Church

Map & Directions 132 W. 138th St.
New York, NY 10030


Village Voice's Description

The ABC congregation dates back to 1808, but the current building was not erected until 1923. The other homes for ABC were on Worth St, in the Five Points and on Waverly, in the West Village. The congregation itself has a long history, having had both Adam Clayton Powell Sr. and Jr. as its senior ministers. It is worth a look, especially if you already happen to be down the road at Sylviaas Soul Food.

Hours: Sunday services only, 9 & 11am

Tips from foursquare

    This prominent Harlem church traces its roots to 1808, when visiting free Ethiopian sailors and African-American parishioners left the Free Baptist Church due to segregated seating.

    This historic landmark still hosts service every Sunday and has over 1000 visitors a week!

    Organization is awesome. People that complain about rudeness doesn't understand that they are INVITED to participate on a ceremony. No shoulders uncovered, no leggings, no backpacks. Also no photos!

    Even if you are not religious, you will surely enjoy this music party. Even if you find a long line and you have to wait around one hour in line, it´s really worth it.

    Check out Jazz series on Sunday nights. $20 to see the best of Lincoln Center in a more intimate setting. Expect sing alongs, dancing, and kind folks.
