Gothic Beauty

Rated:

Another landmark of NYC ticked off the list. The cathedral is beautiful, its architecture is brilliant and its stained glass windows are a major part of its beauty. I would suggest that you attend a service at the cathedral to get a full of feel of the place. We attended both a service and a tour. The staff at the cathedral are welcoming and knowledgeable. A great experience.
