What a great gem! The grounds, the cathedral, the sculptures and artwork are all fabulous.
We went on a Saturday afternoon and could have spent more time here. Don't miss the phoenix exhibit inside and enjoy the children's sculptures outside along with "Peace".
A lovely afternoon expedition and a fabulous little Hungarian bakery next door.

Do yourself a Huge favor and visit this amazing church. It's history is inspiring as it is 120 years old and fights everyday for the title of Largest Cathedral in the World. The stain glass alone will shock you. Stay for choir practice and feel close to God as you walk around taking it all in...,

The Cathedral, perhaps another 150 years away from completion, always merits a visit but these two Phoenix (Phoenices?) by Xu Bing are breathtaking. Easily reached by Metra bus ... if you're in New York for more than two or three days at a time you should consider the $30 unlimited Metracard that is good everywhere, at any time, for subway and/or bus.

In many respects a very impressive church in scale and well worth seeing.
The thing I felt disappointed with, on our visit a glum february afternoon, was how little it felt like a church, the feeling I had when I left the building was as if I had visited a secular building rather than a church.
