After visiting the vibrant neighborhood, head to a local congregation for Sunday worship mass service, where you’ll enjoy a soulful gospel choir singing beautiful gospel music.

The time you remain in church depends on the number of visitors.

At the end of the service, you will head back to Manhattan and be dropped off in the Times Square area.
