Religion Newswriters Award for best in-depth religion reporting in a series.

Who are we?

On September 8, 2016 we had our 34,000,000th viewer! We are #1 on Google search for "NYC religion." We were founded on July 9, 2010 and continue with your support. Thank-you so very much!
-----------------------------------

We are exploring the postsecular city.

Join us as we travel down all 6,374.9 miles of our city's streets, every alleyway and quite a few hallways to map and photograph every religious site and to interview clergy and lay leaders at the sites.

We are an incubator and educator for new ways of doing religion reporting and understanding the postsecular city. We are nonsectarian and nonpartisan and open to anyone's cool and authoritative reporting on NYC religion.

We are a public square for the postsecular city. People of faith, people of no faith, liberals, conservatives--all are welcomed to journey together to make this city better for all people. Our warmest feelings are toward those who help the poor, the needy, and the abused.

Our crack reporter senses the Buddha is close.

  • Writer’s killing upsets Jordan's delicate balance between religion, free speech

    Sunday’s assassination of a Jordanian writer facing charges of blasphemy has placed a spotlight on Jordan’s careful balance between respect for religion and speech freedoms. Nahed Hattar, a controversial columnist and writer, was gunned down by a Jordanian national on Sunday as he entered an Amman court to face trial over publishing a cartoon on Facebook deemed insulting to Islam. It sparked public outrage, and led Jordan’s Prime Minister Hani al-Mulki to direct authorities to jail the writer for two weeks. Mr. Hattar made a conditional apology – saying “I apologize and don’t apologize,” stressing that he did not intend to insult Islam, but rather IS.
