Saint Patrick`s Cathedral, designed by architect James Renwich, is an example par excellence of the American Gothic Revival style. Construction of St. Patrick`s began in 1858 and continued, on and off, for nearly half a century. The pointed, ribbed vaults of the Cathedral spread the weight of the ceiling more evenly, so that the walls bear less weight, allowing for larger windows that let in the natural light that famously floods the Cathedral.
