In 1801, this red-brick, Federal-style building was home to Mother Seton, America's first saint. Born in NYC, Elizabeth Ann married and had five children. When widowed, she became a nun and founded the Sisters of Charity. Inside you'll find a tiny church and shrine, popular with devotees and those craving a little respite from Manhattan's less-than-holy tendencies.
