St. Malachy's - The Actors' Chapel NYC
From their website -- "Located on West 49th Street, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, St. Malachy's Roman Catholic Church was founded in 1902 . . . Fairbanks married Joan Crawford at St. Malachy's. Herb Shriner's children were baptized here. Thousands jammed West 49th Street outside the church in final tribute to Rudolph Valentino. George M. Cohan, Spencer Tracy, Perry Como, Irene Dunne, Hildegarde, Florence Henderson, Elaine Stritch, Lawrence Luckinbill, Rosiland Russell, Danny Thomas, Bob and Dolores Hope and Ricardo Montalban, all worshipped at St. Malachy's. Fred Allen, Don Ameche, Cyril Ritchard, Pat O'Brien and Jimmy Durante served many a mass." The list goes on and on, very beautiful little chapel, it's actually a mini cathedral! And I got the chance to listen to the organist practice and play for a little while to a completely empty church. The sound coming off the marble and granite was fantastic! Talk about a tough crowd to play to and hard act to follow!!!
