The St. Patrick's Cathedral is used by the Christian community as a local church, and as the seat for the Archbishop of New York, and holds 2,200 seats. The length of the cathedral is 120 meters, and its width is about 50 meters.
The church is designed in a neo-Gothic style and is impressive with its beauty, and has been standing here since the 19th century. It was built between the years 1858-1879, though construction was halted during the American Civil War. The building was renewed in 1865, and finally completed in 1879.
The cathedral is considered one of the largest and most beautiful in New York, is made of white stones covered in marble, and its walls are decorated with the characteristics of the Gothic style. The building of the two turrets, both 100 meters tall, was only completed at a later date, in 1888. Between the years 1927-1931 renovations took place here, and this is also when the large organ was installed and the alter was expanded.
Also look at the artworks that present the Via Dolorosa, the final path of Jesus, notice the alter and the big organ that is installed here. Look up and see the beautiful stained glass windows on this special cathedral.
