Though not part of this particular photo essay, here's a spectacular interior shot.


This cross is on the main alter of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York, N.Y; the Great Rose stained glass window is in the background. Construction on the cathedral began in 1858, and was completed in May, 1879. The cathedral is the largest gothic-style Catholic Cathedral in the United States. It seats about 2,200 people and has over 3 million visitors every year.
