But I do envy my friends who have taken this exclusive tour. Here are some pictures from Doug Nervik's fancy new phone:
The nave as seen during the climb up. To give you a sense of proportion, those red squares in the middle in the middle of the photo are chairs.
A close-up of one of the recently cleaned stained glass windows.
A shot between the buttresses.
This last shot was taken in the attic, above the vaulted Guastavino ceiling. Here you can see the tiles. From down below, it's far too dark. This is the vault above the crossing where the Statue of Liberty could comfortably stand. (If she ever came down off her pedestal.)
