Manhattan New York Mormon Temples

Standing alongside some of New York City’s most famous landmarks, the Manhattan New York Temple is located across the street from the famed Lincoln Center and a block from the south end of Central Park. It is the 119th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the second temple built in the state of New York, following the Palmyra New York Temple. It serves congregations in parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Roots in New York run deep for the Church, which was organized in the upstate community of Palmyra in 1830. New York City was an important place to the Church, since many of the Church’s early scriptures, hymnals and newspapers were published there. On a visit to the city in October 1832, Joseph Smith was clearly impressed by what he saw. In a letter to his wife, Emma, he stated, “The buildings are truly great and wonderful, to the astonishing of every beholder.”  Though most Church members migrated westward, the city continued to be an important station through which Mormon immigrants passed on their way to join the Saints in the West and from which Mormon missionaries departed to serve in locations around the world.
