NYC's St. Patrick's Cathedral set for renovation
NYC's St Patrick's Cathedral to undergo 2-year, $175M restoration; church is 133 years old
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City is embarking on a multimillion-dollar renovation.

The $175 million facelift of the Fifth Avenue church is slated to begin at the end of April and last at least two years. The 2,200-seat white marble cathedral opened in 1879.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan is expected to announce the renovation Saturday.



The New York Post (http://nyp.st/A8wQuU ) reports that scaffolding and netting will go up inside and outside the church.

The work will include replacing crumbling marble blocks and refitting stained-glass windows from the 1870s. It will be done every day from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., stopping for daily Masses.

Funeral Masses for Babe Ruth and Robert F. Kennedy were held at St. Patrick's. The cathedral gets more than 5.5 million visitors a year.
