The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine

Why we
love it

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine is a 131-year-old global landmark and the largest gothic cathedral in the world. The Cathedral’s distinctive architecture, with its detailed facade, great bronze doors, and grand staircase, towers over Amsterdam Avenue and extends a full avenue block east to Morningside Drive.

The Cathedral and its surrounding gardens and buildings form a 11.3-acre complex collectively referred to as the Close. Every area within the Cathedral and surrounding gardens delights and inspires.

While the Cathedral primarily serves its diverse communities, its history, architecture, and capability to seat more guests than many Broadway theaters makes it a highly desirable New York City event and performance venue, with guest count capacities ranging from 100 to 800 for seated dinners and up to 2,500 for receptions. When not in use for its own programming, the Cathedral is pleased to consider requests for public and private events.
