Having spent several decades in building and completing the first Chinese Buddhist retreat in New York, Mrs. Ying then stopped and looked around to see what else is needed in Greater New York. She discovered that the Buddhist temples in the city are, even after these many years, still essentially all storefront temples.

They are too small for any sizable functions for the parishioners. So, in honor of Mr. James Ying’s 83rd birthday, Mrs. Annie Ying then built Mahayana (City) Temple in the center of New York’s Chinatown. It was dedicated on lunar date March 3rd in 1997.
