Cathedral Church of St John the Divine
The largest place of worship in the US has yet to be completed – and probably won't be any time soon. But this storied Episcopal cathedral nonetheless commands attention with its ornate Byzantine-style facade, booming vintage organ and extravagantly scaled nave – twice as wide as Westminster Abbey in London. Aside from a one-hour highlights tour, the cathedral also offers a one-hour vertical tour, taking you on a steep climb to the top of the Cathedral (bring your own flashlight).
