Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine
Spanning an entire city block, the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine is the largest cathedral in the world and home to the Episcopal Diocese of New York. Construction started in 1892, and the still-incomplete cathedral is known for its mix of styles, including Byzantine Revival, Romanesque Revival, and Gothic Revival.
 
The Basics

Visit this stunning cathedral to see the largest rose stained-glass window in the country, the tiled dome by Guastavino, and the seven Chapels of the Tongues as well the expansive grounds, which include the Rose Garden and the Biblical Garden. Guided tours include a Highlights Tour and a Vertical Tour, which takes visitors up spiral staircases to the top of the cathedral. St. John the Divine also hosts a variety of popular events throughout the year, including the blessing of the animals and a nighttime reading of Dante’s Inferno.

The cathedral is included in a number of sightseeing tours, including walking and biking tours of Upper Manhattan and Harlem, which often include other area highlights, such as Central Park, Columbia University, and the General Grant National Memorial.
