Arch. 1121

St Patrick’s cathedral

Architect James Renwick Jr. Has created what I think is the best building in the city. Containing high ceilings and huge spires, Renwick sure made this building elegant. St Patrick’s cathedral has an amazing architecture design. Decorated in Neo-gothic style Roman Catholic Church, no other church can be compared to it. Standing between 5th ave and Madison ave, the beautiful architecture is sure to take your breath away. Having an area of 87,120 feet and serving as a Sunday church for 3,000 plus followers it takes up a whole city block. Having 2 huge spires standing 330 feet tall in front of the church it make the church look way taller. Built out of brick clad in marble from Massachusetts and stained glass from Boston. The church over the years has received many renovations. Some examples are the cathedral facade which would have you mesmerized, the view from the Rockefeller center would show you the overall beauty of the marvelous building.
