Churches and Cathedrals Of The World
Saint Patrick's Cathedral is based on the cathedrals of Amiens and Cologne, which you can see in the front, with the towers and the gable I didn't saw the church 5 years ago when I was 10 and we went to New York, but next time all visit the church There's also a less beautiful Saint Patrick's Old Cathedral a few blocks away from this onethe position of this cathedral is rather unfair, overshadowed by huge skyscrapers...
but hey, this a wonderful cathedral! Always loved the english gothic interior!
I don't really think canals are a problem in a modern metropolis, I mean, there goes a lot of transport over water, or by boat. But if you make a good plan for a project to re-open the canals and by not blocking the transport over the road, I think you can make a good combinationGorgeous A'dam! City of canals!
Just a little OT, sorry!
I wish someday we will reopen our canals also here in milan...once Amsterdam and Milan were pretty similar from that point of view...
Just a question: do you think canals are a problem in a modern metropolis from public transport? I guess that they are completely bearable, but many people here argues that they aren't exactly easy to deal with... thanks!
