  • Dean of the Catholic churches of New York, she does not look outside but worth a visit inside! Including a huge crucifix suspended above the altar. And more mass in Chinese some days! Not to be confused with that of the 5th avenue!

  • This was the church my great grandmother worshipped in in the mid nineteenth century - surrounded by a huge protective wall. Then the haters were outside the wall. Unfortunately now they're well secure inside the walls.
  • One of the most beautiful churches in NYC. I go here every time we come to the city. Beautiful
  • This church was the original St. Patrick's Cathedral before the big one went up on 5th Avenue. The churchyard is a quiet, lovely space in the midst of a bustling, artful neighborhood. It remains a community landmark. You may have seen it featured in the Godfather movies. Along the south end of the churchyard on Prince Street is the Cathedral's beautiful, old brick wall. Alongside that wall is an outstanding artisan market that has been there for many years. It features some of New York's finest handmade artisans. Beautiful jewelry, clever T-shirts, handmade hats, artwork and more. I even got my wedding ring from a jewelry maker at this market, and I know of several others who have done the same! Proceeds from vendor fees go to support the cathedral's community programs.
  • Another great cathedral to visit. It was undergoing renovations last I visited.
