St. Johns Cathedral
The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine is the seat of the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York. The cathedral was designed in 1888 and construction began in 1892. It is still unfinished. Magnificent architecture and beautiful stained glass windows define this Gothic Revival cathedral, the nave of which exceeds the length of two football fields. The 162-foot dome could house the Statue of Liberty. The Cathedral’s Great Rose Widow, made of more than 10,000 pieces of glass, is the largest stained-glass window in the United States.
There are various public tours, including a Vertical Tour that takes visitors up 124 feet for spectacular views of the cathedral and New York City. In many different ways, the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine is awe-inspiring.
