Cathedral of St John the Divine, The

Cathedral St. John the Divine "is the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world. Over 600 feet in length, the Statue of Liberty would fit comfortably under its central dome. It is the seat of the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and is "mother church " of the Diocese. Charted a a "house of worship for all peoples," its cornerstone was laid over a century ago.

The Cathedral and its surrounding gardens and buildings form an 11.3-acre complex collectively referred to as The Close.

Founded in 1908, The Cathedral Gardens Conservancy designs, maintains, and supports all of the gardens on the Close. Many of the members of this all-volunteer group have served for decades, planning and implementing this urban oasis.
