He began that process many years ago by removing confessionals and some other 'traditional' elements. It's quite austere and 'cold' inside. The plans to finish the job by closing the Cathedral for 2 years will certainly drive congregants away. When no one returns, he will probably 'bite the hand that fed him' + $1,000,000 in grant money, blaming the NYS Empire State Plaza for stripping away the Cathedral's neighborhood. Guess we'll just have to watch and wait.
