Photographer's Note

I never got a nice photo of the St Patrick Cathedral. So I took this photo of the one tower (in workshop a frontal view of the church).

The Cathedral of St. Patrick, also called St. Patrick's Cathedral, is a decorated neo-gothic Catholic cathedral on Manhattan built in 1978.

The cathedral, which can accommodate 3,000 people, is built of brick clad in marble, quarried in Massachusetts and New York. The main block of the cathedral is made of Tuckahoe marble. It takes up a whole city block, between 50th and 51st Streets and between Madison and Fifth Avenues. At the transepts, it is 174 feet (53.0 meters) wide and 332 feet (101.2 meters) long. The spires rise 330 feet (100.6 meters) from street level. The slate for the roof came from Monson, Maine. It has 19 bells
