16-Foot Tall Gold Buddha
The Mahayana Buddhist Temple provides tranquility from NYCs hustle and bustle. Located next to the Fung Wah Bus ticket office in Chinatown, this temple was once known as The Rosemary, a porno theater that closed down in the mid '90s. The centerpiece of this Buddhist temple is a huge 16-foot tall golden Buddha statue. This Buddha guard resides in a large room where services are often held.
