On Staten Island, the Christ Church New Brighton is a 1905 neo-gothic structure designed by prolific Philadelphia church architect Isaac Purcell. It boasts Tiffany Studios stained-glass windows.

In Syracuse, Temple Concord, founded in 1839, is one of the oldest Jewish religious congregations in the country.
