Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception – Albany NY USA

The richly figurative East Window, enriches the majesty of the interior space with a kalideoscope of dazzling color as morning sunlight pours in from across the Hudson River. The window is a triumph of mid 19th century neo – Gothic design, this piece was produced for the Cathedral just when the neo – Gothic movement was gaining popularity, it is a very early example of English neo – Gothic glass in America.

The 19th century Caen Stone Baptismal Font in a place of prominence near the main entrance of the Cathedral.
