Church of the Transfiguration
on Mott Street at Pell Street. The church of New York City immigrants since 1801, serving, in succession, the Irish, Italian and, currently, the Chinese communities. Father Raymond Nobiletti delivers his sermon in Cantonese as well as in English.

Pell Street is a must-stroll, as it is rich in history, has great eateries and, on the corner of Pell and Doyers Streets, a marvelous little gift shop called Ting's.
