St. Patrick's Cathedral

Was on Fifth Avenue many years ago with some friends from Italy and one of them wanted to know how many centuries St.Patrick's had been there...they were surprised to find it was barely one century old.

Architectural features

‎*The cathedral is built of brick, not marble because brick is stronger. However, it was then covered with marble, quarried in New York and Massachusetts.
