The Church of the Heavenly Rest opened at its iconic Central Park location in 1929. This neo-gothic, Bertram-Goodhue-designed gem is located on Museum Mile on the Upper East Side, set between the Guggenheim and the Cooper-Hewitt Garden.

Spaces here at Heavenly Rest are perfect for all occasions, large and small, including concerts, meetings, art shows, fundraisers, classes, holding companies, school graduation ceremonies, panel discussions, and receptions of all kinds. Come celebrate your next event in one of our beautifully renovated spaces!
