Riverside Church is a Baptist and Congregationalist church in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City. It is located on the block bounded by Riverside Drive, Claremont Avenue, and 120th and 122nd Streets, near Columbia University's Morningside Heights campus and across from Grant's Tomb. An interdenominational church, it is associated with the American Baptist Churches USA and the United Church of Christ. The church was conceived by philanthropist businessman John D. Rockefeller Jr., a Baptist, in conjunction with Presbyterian minister Harry Emerson Fosdick as a large, interdenominational church in Morningside Heights, a neighborhood surrounded by numerous academic institutions.
The original building, opened in 1930, was designed by Henry C. Pelton and Allen & Collens in the Neo-Gothic style.
