It would be fun to visit a gospel church (is this the proper name?) when in New York City. What churches with great music and some atmosphere are there to choose from. I read somewhere that Harlem may be the area where you can find them. We are not believers so we don't really want to take part in any worshipping - just enjoy the music and the atmosphere of a vivid gospel church service.
