A tourist in New York City. Ups: Skyscraper and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.5th Avenue and 51st Street


La arquitectura de Nueva York es, posiblemente, el elemento predominante en las fotos de la ciudad.
En el caso presente la Catedral de San Patricio y un bloque de rascacielos cercano.

The story of New York’s great cathedral mirrors the story of the city itself. Created to affirm the ascendance of religious freedom and tolerance, St. Patrick’s Cathedral was built in the democratic spirit, paid for not only by the contributions of thousands of poor immigrants but also by the largesse of 103 prominent citizens who pledged $1,000 each. St. Patrick’s Cathedral proves the maxim that no generation builds a cathedral. It is rather, a kind of ongoing conversation linking generations past, present and future. 
The cornerstone of St. Patrick’s Cathedral was laid in 1858 and her doors swept open in 1879
