  • Beautiful cathedral. We made it in before mass so it was open late. Enjoyed the poinsettias and Christmas decorations.

  • They should not sell audio tours immediately prior to an officer’s memorial. Many of the sites towards the back were roped off and they roped us off as well. We were then asked if we were private...

  • This was an awe inspiring and majestic visit for us. It is a sacred place and deeply worthy of respect and a visit. While it might appear gothic and solemn in its outdoor architecture, inside its stately, grand, glorious and uplifting. The Christmas display and music here was thrilling! A lot of detail is evident in this famed Cathedral and it certainly was reflective during our time here. We loved the cathedral and highly recommend it to anyone of any faith, or no faith. It’s simply a wonderful institution of New York and for those with faith, a precious conduit to a higher power. A truly great place that we found enormously welcoming to all. Very highly recommended!
  • The most beautiful church I've ever been to. It felt so calm with angelic singing music. Beautiful sculptures and architect. Well lit and police protecting the church and the guest that come in. I felt safe. Such a great experience to bring friends and family and even go to Sunday mass.
  • Such an amazingly beautiful & expansive Holy space! And open to the public - who were respectful and quiet. There were many places to pray & light candles. The ornate sculptures of the stages of the cross & of several saints made it educational for even the most devote Christian. I especially enjoyed hearing the pipe organ bellow though the space. Definitely a must see.
  • Free to enter but tours are available for a few, very impressive building with multiple chapels around the outside. Magnificent windows and organ and an amazing vaulted ceiling. The cathedral is well worth a visit if you are in the Rockefeller Center area.
  • This iconic New York landmark receives approximately five million visitors a year, The striking architecture is wonderful. I didn’t had the opportunity to go inside because it was closed for a private event but the outside of the is a religious experience. The cathedral was built in the half of the 19th century to symbolize the rise of religious freedom and tolerance in America.
