Cathedral of St. John the Divine

1047 Amsterdam Ave. New York


See Website

Built in the 1890s to rival the grand St. Patrick's Cathedral in Midtown, St. John the Divine in upper Manhattan is the second largest Anglican church in the world (and much bigger than St. Patrick's). Architectural styles include Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic Revival and stunning stone carvings are integrated throughout, courtesy of Italian stonemasons who came to America expressly for this construction. The acoustics are world-renowned and concerts in the cathedral are extraordinary experiences, particularly around the Christmas season.
