The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine sits at the end of our street, is visible from our window, and also happens to be the largest cathedral in the world. Its construction began in 1892, and it remains partially unfinished. Since the cathedral is in the Gothic Revival style, I decided to wear my most medieval garb…which basically boils down to a long dress, a chunk of amethyst, and Lord of the Rings-esque hair. I enjoy gothic architecture because it’s overwhelming and disturbing, but also grotesquely beautiful. The interior and grounds of St. John’s cast an aura of simultaneous calm and creepiness.
