Hidden in a side street between Fifth and Madison Avenues in the Upper East Side, the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas is a unique example of Russian church architecture in New York City. The structure is complete with multiple onion domes topped by Russian crosses. It was built in 1902 to serve the then growing Russian Orthodox community that once lived in this area.
