Places of Worship, Richmond
As odd as it may sound, Richmond has a more international flavour than its stereotype might suggest. There are restaurants of just about every major nationality including a Filipino, a Brazilian, and several Greek restaurants. There is also a surprisingly large Greek community in Richmond, one large enough to have necessitated the construction- as far back as 1917- of the Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox church at the corner of Malvern and Grove Avenue. The first weekend every June, the parking lot and property surrounding the church is hopping with people when the Greek Festival is held there.
