We have learned that a massive undertaking has taken place here in New York City on 5th Avenue. The behemoth bronze doors at St. Patrick’s Cathedral have been temporarily removed for a good cleaning. The removal operation required an enormous crane and shutting down 5th Avenue.
The detail, color, patina, and sheer mass…9000 pounds each!…are just awe-inspiring. We can’t wait to see these stunning functional works of art all spiffed up and put back in place. Via NY Post.
