This church was founded in 1823, and the impressive cathedral was built in the French Gothic style right in the heart of what is now Midtown. The contrast between the architecture of this beautiful building and the skyscrapers surrounding it is breathtaking. The church offers regular Episcopal services, but the highlight of any visit is the renowned St. Thomas Choir.
The William H. Moore House is an ancient historical house that stands located in New York. Constructed in the year 1898, the house is a noted avenue in New York.

It is regarded as one of the finer examples of the archetypal turn of the century stone house.
During the formation of Manhattan before the Commissioners' Plan of 1811 created New York's rectilinear street grid, this church first provided Calvinist dogma in various churches downtown. In 1875, the church moved uptown to 55th and 5th Ave., where it today hosts a ethnically diverse congregation from around Manhattan. This particular denomination was also instrumental in several seminal bible societies throughout the last two centuries and continues its influence throughout the country today.
This massive cathedral, situated across from Rockefeller Center on Fifth Avenue, is the largest Catholic cathedral in the United States. With its two soaring 330-foot spires, St. Patrick's Cathedral is also one of the city's most spectacular architectural sights.

Inside, it boasts a seating capacity of 2,500, numerous altars and stained glass windows, and a giant organ with over 7,300 pipes. Services are held throughout the day, and many New Yorkers stop in for a moment of serenity in their otherwise hectic lives.
Home to the legendary dance company The Rockettes, Radio City Music Hall is one of the most spectacular and famous performance venues in the United States.

Anybody who is anybody has performed here - New York legends Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Sammy Davis, Jr. are just a few that spring to mind - and to this day, the stage remains a showcase for entertainment royalty.
