The Cathedral of St. John the Divine sits like an uninvited guest from the times of sexist Knights and flying buttresses. Arguably the strangest building in New York City, we at Untapped absolutely adore it. So come and join us for a vertical tour of St. John the Divine and stand atop the unfinished yet still somehow the largest cathedral in the world. 

On this tour, we will take you “behind the scenes” of this cathedral: You’ll see the hidden spiral staircase built by Rafael Guastavino, come face to face with the stained glass windows which seem so far away from below, and you’ll have the rare chance to explore the cathedral’s attic. All vertical tours start through this mysterious door:

The tour will take place on Saturday, September 27th at 2 p.m. If you come on the tour, you will also have a chance to meet the Untapped Cities founder, and to mingle with other like-minded urbanites. Purchase tickets below or by clicking here.
