Cathedral of All Saints - Albany, NY

The Cathedral of All Saints was the first Episcopal cathedral in America to be conceived and built on the English model of church, hospital, convent and school. The brainchild of William Croswell Doane (1832-1914), first Bishop of Albany, the Cathedral was intended to recreate and literally imitate its English prototypes right down to the ancient pavements and stones. I am fortunate that this church is literally on the same block as where I work, so I am able to go there whenever I want to. Yesterday I stopped in, and as usual, there was not a soul in sight, so I snapped a few pictures. It is truly a beautiful cathedral. http://www.cathedralofallsaints.org
