In the serene campus of the Fordham University, this gothic church stands out as a gem. Wonderful stain glass windows and even the organs adds to the beauty of the setting. Brings instant peace to all visitors.

Listen, when you've seen one church, you've seen them all, I understand. However, this chapel is really quite beautiful, and the stained glass windows are said to be the inspiration for Edgar Allen Poe's poem THE BIRDS
