We went back today to show Grandma and Grandpa. It was their first day in NYC. Although we started them off with a couple of NYC classics like The Museum of Natural History and Tom's Restaurant (Grandma is a huge Seinfeld fan), the Cathedral was also a magnificent place to visit. It's grand, the garden is beautiful, it's unexpected. Tour groups do stop by (as we were leaving, a bus pulled up), but both times I went, it was just as it trying to be: Divine! Even when my kids were inside.
Escapes in NYC
Cathedral Church of St. John Divine. It was the perfect escape in this loud crazy city. And my loud crazy kids. It just so happened to have a high school group from Texas singing hymns. It was such an unexpected moment that I cried by the time they finished their first song! Motherhood has made me such a cry baby.
