  • This Cathedral in the heart of 5th Ave is a gem in NYC that you need to visit when you in the area. The Cathedral is so beautiful and grand within the heart of Manhatten. I love the peace feeling of t...  more »
  • What's not to love for this iconic tourist trap. However, their is a significant spiritual ritual of lighting candles and praying in this beautiful church. 
  • chiesa molto bella dedicata a S. Patrizio con molte sculture marmoree di santi, nella parte destra della navata era ancora esposto un presepe molto suggestivo

  • The Staff is straight awful. The african american worker up front (check your bags) was rude and racist up to a certain point. Also, he didn't like the fact that he got exposed. I understand that the worker sees 1000 people a day and probably earns $2 but that's not an excuse. Moving on to what really matters: The Cathedral was beautiful! Such a nice asset to Manhattan.
  • Amazing Architecture. I'm not a Catholic but I admire the work the church has put into this beautiful building. If you haven't visited since before the update, its time to pay this gorgeous church a visit.
  • ​Beautiful church with stunning architecture. Stop by if you are within the Rockefeller Center area. When the church is open to the public outside of church services, the noise level can become intolerable so those visiting to pray may not find it a pleasant and solemn experience.
  • Nice place to pray and relaxing, stunning architecture, and also have one Virgen de Guadalupe frame
  • Even though the church is quite beautiful it's treated as a museum during each mass, making it a disrespectful atmosphere for people that are actively interested in praying. People come into the church and walk in front of you and hinder you from trying to find a seat because of how many there are constantly walking around and talking or snapping pictures and flashing with their phones and the ushers stand around joking, talking and dancing around in front of you and also just sitting on their phones while real Catholics are trying to be faithful. This behavior should not be allowed and is quite offensive and completely wrong for those that actually want to be there for Jesus. Masses are sacred and the "bustling" city of NYC is destroying the true beauty of the church, which is the mass not the architecture. Touring shouldn't be allowed while mass is occurring and is unacceptable.
