Fodor's Review

This pleasant and bright Buddhist temple is at a very busy corner, at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge Arch on the Bowery. There's an excellent gift shop on the second floor. Before its reincarnation as a place of worship in 1997, this was the Rosemary, a movie theater showing a mix of kung fu and porn.
