St. Patrick's Cathedral under construction in the heart of New York City
Circa 1888 - the year the towers were added.

Sounds like another quest for Benjamin Gates.

I wonder if it was part of the old east wall of the cathedral that was removed to build the Lady Chapel in 1903. It wound up as part of Our Lady of Lourdes Church in upper Manhattan. Here's a picture:


This is the original east wall of St. Patrick's Cathedral facing Madison Avenue now up on Hamilton Heights. The original altar had elaborate reredos to disguise it. I wonder if the cathedral's cornerstone was moved as well.

Much has been learned about the cornerstone, except for two salient details: Where it is and when it went missing.

I believe I recall reading somewhere about an Ascension.
