St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery

Map & Directions 131 E. 10th St.
New York, NY 10003


Village Voice's Description

A political gathering place for the young East Village set, St. Markas-Church-in-the-Bowery hosts theater, music and dance performances, even though it is still a working church with weekly services and a strong outreach program. The importance of the church to the community can be seen from the posters plastered on the fence.

    Bored to Death happened here. In front of this church is where Jonathan creepily staked out an Al-Anon meeting to spy on his ex-girlfriend's new beau. Watch out.
