Santísimo Redentor

The Church of the Most Holy Redeemer, also known as Santísimo Redentor, on East 3rd St. between Avenues A & B. This is the view from the northwest, around A and 4th St. It's a Roman Catholic church, built in 1851-52. Originally it served the large German immigrant population that lived in the Lower East Side at the time, but today it has a Latino congregation and is a shrine to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
