On Our Radar:
The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine
Posted by:  Joshua Cochran

After traveling through Europe for a few weeks, I nearly had a nervous breakdown. I was at Notre Dame in Paris and I collapsed on the sidewalk in tears because there I was, about to go look at another freaking cathedral, as if all I'd done for three weeks was look at cathedrals, and I suddenly wanted to die. But when you haven't admired the fantastic beauty of a formidable cathedral lately, I highly suggest making a trip to St. John the Divine. A work-in-progress, the cathedral rivals any found in Europe for both it's awesome size and classic form, and it's right here in New York City. You don't ever have to go to Europe. Guided tours are available for a mere $5, Tuesdays through Saturdays at 11 am and 1 pm. Otherwise, you can peruse the grounds or attend an Episcopal service.

Cathedral of Saint John the Divine

What does this church have in common with a John Waters drag star? One word: Divine. That's pretty much all you need to known about this Morningside Heights landmark claiming to be the fourth largest church in the world. But let Annie Karni tell you the rest.
