St. John the Unfinished


Next to Columbia University The Cathedral of St. John the Divine is one of the most prominent landmarks of Morningside Heights (and fourth biggest Christian church in the world). The construction started in 1892 and is still going on, therefore it’s nickname ›St. John the Unfinished‹. However, compared to the the lengthy construction of the Cologne Cathedral, 122 years is still rather short and some progress can be witnessed – at least the tower grew a few feet over the last decade.
