  • A cathedral without many attractions. Similar to Notre Dame, but there's nothing particularly attractive. Visit to get to know each other. Only

  • Coming from the northeast I love the old church feel inside, I personally don't like these modern style catholic churches that feel more like a conference room then a worship space. This church brings that good old school awe inspiring feel to it, it feels catholic. The church has both English and Spanish liturgies. Range around an hour long for mass. Music is good. They have somebody who knows how to play the Organ. I have seen three different priests offer mass and each with a unique style. If you are looking for a typical Catholic Worship place this is the church for you. Nothing crazy or radical and you need not try to guess what is going to happen next. They follow the rite. That is why I like it.
  • Once I learned that the original Saint Patrick's Cathedral was still open, I wanted to visit. Unfortunately my schedule and their visiting hours never matched, until now. Glad I got a chance to visit. This classic old minor basilica was great to visit. I hope to get a chance to visit and take their tour, lots of history to see and understand. It's also in a part of town that's fun to visit and explore.
  • Love the design and even though it isn't quite as impressive as the gothic European churches and cathedrals, it certainly has charm!
  • Bishop Dubois, one of our first New York bishops is buried here in the historic crypt. The wonderful interior has seen much history. Venerable Pierre Toussant whose body was translated from here to the "new" St Patrick's Cathedral used to come to this "uptown" church on many charitable deeds. St Elizabeth Ann Seton's Sisters of Charity opened the first school in the Catholic system here across the street. The church is still very important to the still present Italian-American community and is reaching the new residents under the dynamic pastor Msgr. Sakano.
  • Well first of all That was my neighborhood and where i was born on Mulberry St and then I stareted to go to school at St Patricks until I moved out of the beauty New york I love my Church old St Patricks and were i was born and yes it was a beautiful neighborhood back in the day Judith Lemole

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
