Cathedral of Saint John the Divine

For architecture lovers, the one place in the whole wide world where Gothic and Romanesque architecture are blended in their purest forms, is shockingly not found in Europe, but right here in New York. The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, officially called the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in the City and Diocese of New York, is the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.

Located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, in Manhattan’s Morningside Heights, the cathedral is claimed to be the largest Cathedral and Anglican Church and fourth largest Christian church in the world. With its disputed title with Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, the grand stature is so massive that it makes the gigantic Statue of Liberty look small in its comparison.

The inside of the Cathedral covers more than half a city block, with 121,000 sq ft (11,200 m2), spanning a length of 183.2 meters (601 ft) and a height of 70.7 meters (232 ft). The inside height of the nave is a major 37.8 meters (124 feet). These dimensions make this architectural heaven a major attraction for tourists in the city.

The beauty of its colossal dimensions is colored by the magnificent gothic stained glass that offers a beautiful view of the world around the place. The cathedral is surrounded by lush green gardens with virgin roses and colorful wandering peacocks, making the cathedral look so serene that one feels he is transported into a whole new world and era.

“Wonderful and handsome are my words for this!”

I was swash-buckled by the amazing plethora of facilities available, stayed at the Garden Duplex Apartment and right from the patio to the kitchen to the rooms and all that was present were seriously flabbergasting!

I have never come across something as serene and as subtle as the Garden View Apartment, the facilities were amazing and the place was beautiful, it was a perfect what you call it as a ‘Perfect Zen Retreat’ for me and my family and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there!

I would definitely recommend this to anyone and if you want to spend some good quality time with your family away from the hustle bustle of the city, mind you that East Village Apartments are the best for you eyes closed! Very inviting and very appealing, I don’t have words to describe the enjoyment and relaxing we had!
