This is a gorgeous Episcopalian cathedral in the heart of time square. The people are lovely, and the music is beautiful. Take the self-guided tour, and make sure to look in all the nooks and crannies.

If you are close to Times Square then you must stop in and visit. It is FREE. The Church was founded in 1868 and is very historic with one of the finest Gothic architectures in NYC. Definitely worth a visit. It is also a safe...More
