Exterior: Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is an example par excellence of the American Gothic Revival style designed by Architect James Renwick. Construction of St. Patrick’s began in 1858 and continued, on and off, for nearly a half century. The pointed, ribbed vaults of the Cathedral spread the weight of the ceiling more evenly, allowing for walls that don’t need to hold as much weight and thus have bigger windows that lend to the natural light that famously floods the Cathedral.
