Ethereal Cathedrals

New York City is a mixture of present, future, and past. Part of the past that is constant throughout the Big Apple appears in the  form of cathedrals and other religious structures. I had time to quickly visit both cathedrals (actually I was able to visit the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and St. Thomas church in less than 5 hours, by myself might I add!) and I was happy I made time for them. Unfortunately during my NYC trip, St. Patrick’s Cathedral was under construction so I wasn’t able to get too many good pictures but it was more magnificent than any photo that I was able to take. About 5 million people visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral every year; black, white, Latino, believers and non believers. But the beautiful thing about these churches is that they are so welcoming, no matter who are, what you look like or what you are wearing. I know temples that you can’t visit unless you belong to the religion, which to me kind of contradicts the whole concept that their Savior welcomes everyone with open arms. Whether or not you are a religious person I definitely recommend that you visit at least one cathedral while you are in NYC; the architecture is phenomenal, the atmosphere is serene and the best part, IT’S FREE!
