This is the Cathedral Chucrh of St. John the Divine. It's at 1047 Amsterdam avenue/112th st. NYC. It is hugh and old. Such beautiful stone work, inside and out. Full of statues, and carvings.built in 1892. The year Ellis island opened. It is chartered as as a house of prayer for all people and unifying center of intellectual light and leadership. Many faiths worship together in services held 30 times a week. but there was no services going on when we toured the church.
This beautiful rosette is the 4th largest in America. I do not know where the other three could be.
I am always amazed at the stone carvings of churches. Well old buildings in general. I know there are wonderfully talented people in the world, but I don't know any stone carvers. While we were at the NBC studios, we also walked to Saint Patrick's Cathedral. It was under some construction. Lots of scaffolds in NYC.
