St. Patrick’s Cathedral – New York, New York

St. Patrick’s Cathedral is a noteworthy landmark in midtown Manhattan. Started in 1858, delayed during the civil war, and completed in 1878, this structure is the largest Gothic Revival Catholic cathedral in North America.

I didn’t have time to enter inside. However, a high-resolution picture of the cathedral with the 51MP GFX was worth it for the detailed image capture. I enjoyed exploring all its intricate carvings.

Reading about the structure’s history, I didn’t know this was the second St. Patrick’s in Manhattan. The old St. Patrick’s, built between 1908 and 1815, was located in Lower Manhattan’s NoLita (North of Little Italy) neighborhood. The current cathedral was built to accommodate New York City’s growing Catholic community.
