St. Patrick's Cathedral and the Statue of Atlas

St. Patrick's Cathedral and the Statue of Atlas
St. Patrick's Cathedral is the largest Roman Catholic church in the entire U.S. Construction began in 1859 but was interrupted by the Civil War. It was officially dedicated in 1879 while still not fully completed.

The statue of Atlas is a two-tone sculpture in front of the International Building (Rockefeller Center). Atlas is carrying the world as punishment for defying Zeus.
