Construction on the cathedral was begun with the laying of the cornerstone on December 27, 1892, St. John's Day, when Bishop Henry Potter hit the stone three times with a mallet and said "Other foundation can no man lay, than that is laid which is Jesus Christ." The first services were held in the crypt, under the crossing in 1899.
DAY 2: Frick Collection, Abyssinian Baptist Church, Studio Museum of Harlem.
Founded in New York City in 1974, DIA Beacon was founded to help artists achieve projects that might not otherwise be possible due the scale or scope of the art. The museum focuses on collecting in-depth works of artists of the 1960s and 1970s. In May 2003, the foundation purchased and opened the Beacon, NY location in a former Nabisco box printing factory.
