Union Church Of Pocantico Hills: A Unique Aesthetic & Spiritual Experience

Rockefeller, Jr. in 1921, as part of his plans to develop the town of Pocantico Hills, right near his family estate, Kykuit.  Marvel at the colorful rose window designed by Rockefeller's wife, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller's favorite artist, Henri Matisse in memory of her death in 1948.  When John D. Rockefeller, Jr. passed away in 1960, their children commissioned artist Marc Chagall to create the Good Samaritan stained glass window in his honor, which brought a dramatic combination of light and color, art, and spirituality to the church.
