Cathedral of St. John the Divine The Highlights

When your double decker bus tour gets to The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, hop off!! The Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of New York is located on Amsterdam Avenue between West 110th Street and 113th Streets in Manhattan's Morningside Heights neighborhood. Designed in 1888 and begun in 1892, the cathedral has undergone radical stylistic changes and the interruption of the two World Wars. Originally designed in the Byzantine Revival-Romanesque Revival styles, the plan was changed after 1909 to a Gothic Revival design. It remains unfinished, with construction and restoration a continuing process. As a result, it is often referred to as “St. John the Unfinished.” Daily tours provide an inspiring and in-depth way to experience the Cathedral. The Cathedral offers 3 different tours: The Highlights Tour explores the many highlights of the Cathedral’s history, architecture, and artwork, from the Great Bronze Doors to the seven Chapels of the Tongues. The Vertical Tour--on this hour long, adventurous, “behind-the-scenes” tour, climb more than 124 feet through spiral staircases to the top of the world's largest cathedral. Learn stories through stained glass windows and sculpture and study the grand architecture of the Cathedral while standing on a buttress. The tour culminates on the roof with a sweeping view of Manhattan. The Spotlight Tours are specially created by Cathedral Guides to give visitors a closer look at unique aspects of the Cathedral’s extraordinary architecture, artwork, and history.
