St. Patrick's Cathedral, 5th Ave and 51st Street
The great cathedral was once ridiculed as "Hughes' Folly," mocking Archbishop Hughes in the mid 1800's for wanting to build a Cathedral so far "up north" where there was nothing but trees. But Hughes' prophetic vision was carried out and it sits proudly amongst the skyscrapers in what is now the center of the city.
