“Horrible changes to lovely cathedral”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2011

I was staying a block from the St. John's Cathdral and decided to take a look inside. It was immediately apparent that someone thought the cathedral needed "updating" and made two ghastly changes:
1. A huge crown of thorns and crucifix hanging from the ceiling in the middle of the interior is hideous in so many ways it defies description.
2. What was I'm sure once an attractive area behind the altar at the very front of the cathedral is now a vast array of organ pipes. Dreary and ugly at the same time.
The good news is that these gross mistakes are curable.
