Zen Buddhist Temple-New York City opened its door to the public in 2014 after three years of intensive renovation of the building on 206 E. 63rd Street in Manhattan. The mission to found a temple in New York City began November 2007 by renting an apartment in the China Town. We moved around from China Town to Brooklyn to Chelsea before the current temple building was purchased in March 2011. Founding teacher, the Venerable Samu Sunim dedicated tirelessly to the search and supervision of the renovation and now serves as resident priest and conducts the Sunday public services and teaches the meditation course.

The Sunday morning meditation service takes place at 10:30 am (you may arrive between 10 and 10:30 am). Your donation is very much needed and appreciated ($10 suggested donation).
