Hello, It's been quite some time since I've been on here. I have recently moved, and live in Staten Island, NY. I noticed that there is a Sikh Gurdwara (hope I got that right), that seems easily accessible by train. I have been tempted to visit, but am feeling rather awkward/shy about how to go about this. I have read where all are welcome in a gurdwara, but still wonder if I should call first to see if it's o.k. In this day and age, I find that most places of worship are locked, due to crime. It is a shame, but that's how it is, so I wouldn't want anyone to think I was lurking, snooping or whatever if I just showed up. I have never been to a gurdwara, and I have a particular interest in Sikhism, as it coincides with many of my beliefs, and most of all, seems to have good common sense, which is the most important thing to me, being of a practical nature. So, if anyone has advice on how I should go about this, I would appreciate it. Thanking you in advance.
