The Church of the Epiphany is a parish church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, located at 373 Second Avenue at the corner of East 22nd Street, in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.
The current church was designed by Belfatto & Pavarini and built in 1965–1967 for $1,200,000 ($9,000,000 in current dollar terms), on the same lot as the previous church. The seating is distributed closely around the main altar, supporting the liturgical reforms of Vatican II. In 2000, the AIA Guide to New York City called this church: "the most positive modernist religious statement on Manhattan Island to date."
