St. John the Divine

St. John the Divine is one of the largest gothic cathedrals in the world...or would be, if it were ever completed. It's been under construction for 100+ years. It is also the seat of the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.

The grounds feature some creepy Bible-themed sculptures and are roamed by peacocks.

Annals

In December 2001, the north transept of the cathedral (you'll learn what this means in Art Hum) burned down in a fire, another reason for the perpetual scaffolding.

In November 2006 vandals lopped off the head of a George Washington statue on the Cathedral and left a one dollar bill in its place.

In March 2007 Elton John rented (?) the Cathedral for his 60th birthday party, inviting equal parts criticism and awe.
