It is amazing to see this beautiful, ornate and large cathedral dwarfed by the modern highrises that surround it.

It is the largest Catholic Cathedral in the US, with it's twin spires reaching a height of 330 feet and seating 2,200 people. It was designed by an American, James Renwick, in a very Europeon style. It's doors first opened in May 1879 after 21 years of construction!

Address: East 51st St, 5th Avenue.
