Despite any thoughts on theology, etc. (this is an Episopalian NOT Roman Catholic church) you must appreciate the beauty, care, and majesty of this building and understand the number of devoted faithful who built and maintain this church.

This is a gorgeous Episcopalian cathedral in the heart of time square. The people are lovely, and the music is beautiful. Take the self-guided tour, and make sure to look in all the nooks and crannies.

Stopped by there last week and very much enjoyed that they build everything else around it. The church is very small, yet very pretty. The inside is dark and has a very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere that you dont get at St-Patrick's Cathedral.

If you are close to Times Square then you must stop in and visit. It is FREE. The Church was founded in 1868 and is very historic with one of the finest Gothic architectures in NYC. Definitely worth a visit. It is also a safe...More
