Within the Walls: Exploring Hidden Spaces Spotlight Tour

DATE:  Sat, Jan 26, 2013  TIME:  10:30am – 12:00pm

I received an email from EveryBlock today informing  us that the Cathedral of St. John the Divine has scheduled a “behind-the-scenes” tour of Harlem’s famous Cathedral.  I started attending St. John the Divine 8 years ago after moving to Harlem and have always been fascinated by its magnificent gothic architecture, spiral staircases and the incredible altar.  I am excited to see these hidden spaces surrounding this beautiful Cathedral.  Please see a previous post I wrote about this famous Gothic Cathedral St. John the Divine many years back  Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Harlem.

For the full description of the tour and additional information see the following:

This extended tour features “behind-the-scenes” climbs in both the eastern and western ends of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.  In the East, descend into the unfinished crypt and then ascend Rafael Guastavino’s beautiful spiral staircase to incredible views high above the altar.  The western climb presents an amazing view down the entire length of the world’s largest cathedral.  Led by Senior Cathedral Guide Robert Bleggi.  $20.00 per adult, $15.00 per student/senior.  Space is limited to 15 people (12 years of age and older), and reservations are recommended. For reservations, go to http://www.stjohndivine.org/pe_forthcoming.html or call 866-811-4111 (additional service charges apply).  Meet at Visitor Center.

Harlem church to become Harlem mosque

By HarlemGal

These pictures say it all. We now know who purchased the church located at 371-373 Manhattan Avenue in Harlem. The picture below says “this is what you paid for. Please continue to donate.” No moving date was listed on the signage below. We also asked a few people standing outside Masjid Aqsa Mosque if they knew when they were relocating and no one would comment. If the mosque is relocating to Manhattan Ave., then what’s to become of their current property located on Frederick Douglass Blvd. between 115th and 116th Street? Will they sale it or rent it out? In due time, we will find out.
