Corpus Christi Church
Roman Catholic Church located at 529 West 121st Street (across the street from Teachers College).
The church is best known for its association with Thomas Merton. Merton was baptized and took his first communion there and was a member of the parish while a graduate student at Columbia University. The church also runs a school, which comedian George Carlin attended as a boy. Carlin's recollections attending the school form the basis for much of the material on his Class Clown album.
