St. Jean Baptiste, 76th Street and Lexington Avenue
The parish's humble beginnings can be traced back to a rented room above a stable on 77th Street, nicknamed the "Crib of Bethlehem" due to the noise and smells from the horses below. The epic structure it is today is run by priests of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament, and the church is known for continuous exposure of the Eucharist and daily confession.
