Saint Cecilia’s Church, built from 1883-87, is located at 120 East 106th Street in the section of East Harlem known as “El Barrio,” between Lexington and Park Avenues. The church was one of the first religious institutions built in the area. The building’s function as a Roman Catholic Parish has been in continuous use since 1884.
The former Manhattan Odd Fellows Temple located at 105 E 106th Street has been home to numerous establishments throughout the years, including the first recording studio in Harlem.
