The Shrine Parish of the Holy Innocents, 128 West 37th Street
Completed in 1870, this church's first parishioners had to contend with the large number of cows that wandered the streets and pastures surrounding the church while making their way to Mass. Today the parish has the world's only "Shrine of the Unborn," which is dedicated to children who died before or at birth.
