NYC October "Must Do" Event #2: Halloween at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine

The Big Adventure Presents: NYC October "Must Do" Event #2: Halloween at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

Okay, so we know this is may be a few weeks early, but you certainly don't have to wait till All Hallows eve to visit the world's second largest Cathedral.

If you've never been, let it first be said that this place is Amazing with a capital A and three Zs. Located a bit uptown and a touch off the beaten path at 112th and Amsterdam on the Upper West Side, this building complete with intricate details and ginormous halls is impressive no matter your faith. Construction began in 1882 (and, officially, is still not complete) and currently houses 121,000 sq ft of working church and captivating historical religious icons and ephemera.

But t
he reason you should make your first visit in October is because they are hosting a series of activities including ongoing, inexpensive tours by knowledgeable guide, A Procession of the Ghouls (??), Following a screening of the file  The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1921),  The "Crypt Crawls" and a chance for all-ages to learn more about the stunning gargoyles. All in all, this sounds to us like just one big bowl of fiber enriched Awesome-Os. Halloween 2010 at St. John The Divine
