NYC cathedral beauty

Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York City

Really enjoyed the gardens and their inhabitants.

 Small plaques like this around the garden.
All quotes on peace? 
Didn't read them all, so I'll just have to return to find out.
They had one from John Lennon, too.

all creatures of our God and King

This peacock is named Bill.
There is also a white peacock named Phil, but we couldn't find him.

They had an interfaith art exhibit going on off to the side.

Lighting a candle for prayer.

Imagine the music one could make in this place...
Singing to the Lord in such a setting would be amazing.

This is not a small nave.

It may be modern, but it still has that timeless feel.

As with cathedrals in Europe, this will probably take centuries to finish.
And that's just fine.
