  • A beautiful jewel Arqutiectonica that stands out among so many contemporary buildings and concrete. It is a peiza of the history in Manhattan and a refuge, when entering one forgets where it is!

  • A NYC landmark not to be missed! After a multi year renovation, the interior and exterior have been magnificently restored to their original grandeur. View the altar from the rear before walking down each side to admire the numerous chapels lining the building's interior perimeter. From the altar area, turn around to take in the view of the choir loft and massive organ. If your timing is lucky, you might hear the organist playing, a welcome bonus! The Cathedral is to be enjoyed by worshipers and tourists alike!
  • Gorgeous!!! A definite must see...much more crowded than the St. Thomas church but bigger and just breathtaking. The intricate detailed work inside and out is AMAZING! It's free to get in and they let you take video and pictures of almost everything. My kids loved it as well.
  • This is a great time of year to visit this exquisite palace in New York City. The Saint Patrick's Cathedral is one of the most beautiful places to visit in New York City. You do not have to be Christian to enjoy it. Go light a candle and pray for a loved one. This is a great time of year to visit it, because it's Christmas time. It is filled with rich architecture and culture. You can attend a mass based on the schedule. It would be wise to pay attention to all of the statues and all the written material that accompanies them. No bathrooms, tight security, many people, yet worth the visit. I go there every year at Christmas Time. There is no church like this in NYC, possible in our country. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
  • Majestic! I love this church. It's a pitstop on my way to work. Though always filled with tourists you could find peace in there. A very good refugee from the hustle and bustle outside. It is also like an at gallery. Beautiful sculptures and paintings adorn thus place.
  • In simple words: Wow! This church is beautiful outside and inside its just amazing! How stunning is to walk by it and to see the beautiful architecture between so many buildings in NYC. This church is one of the must go places to visit in the city of new york and I super recommend it! And cool thing is it is free to enter the church and check inside.
