Behind the Scenes: Treasures of New York

After working on St. Patrick Cathedral’s conservation for the past 9 years, BCA’s work culminated in a visit by Pope Francis in September. Recognized for our contribution in over 5 publications, BCA’s role was most notably highlighted in the PBS documentary series Treasures of New York produced by WLIW/WNET

Ray Pepi & Michele Boyd were filmed at BCA New York in March 2015. Michele spoke about the history of the Cathedral while Ray described the conservation process. Here’s a behind the scenes look at the filming process.
