    A beautifully restored cathedral set on 5th Avenue. It truly is worth a visit/detour as you stroll down 5th Avenue.  more »

    What a beautiful structure, both inside and out. Amazing architecture, simply amazing inside. Cannot believe how big it is, and sits right in the middle of the city. Stunning!  more »

    I enjoyed this place quite much. It doesn't matter whether you're a person of faith or not, or if you practice another religion, this Cathedral (and any other Catholic church) is open for everyone. The architecture is amazing. Personally I'm a roman Catholic, and I recommend a hundred times to visit this place.

    Very interesting tourist destination. Mass is every hour on the hour and flows continuously. Tourist come in and out during mass taking photos of everything going on. The cathedral itself is so big they have to have flatscreen TVs in order to see the priest. Be prepared to have your bag searched by security in order to get in. Police are everywhere inside and outside the cathedral. Very crowded with many tourist visiting and it's almost impossible to get into the gift shop. There is a nice section in St. Patrick's where homeless people can stay to get out of cold and bad weather. St. Patrick's is definitely worth a visit for the "WOW" factor and any Catholic!

    What an amazing building -- certainly one of the most beautiful churches in America. The architecture, the stained glass... gorgeous. It feels like being in one of the great cathedrals in Europe. And the church is very welcoming - greeters were happy to have tourists visit and walk around inside, even during a service. Easy to combine a visit to this landmark with any visit to Rockefeller Center. Don't miss it!

    if you are looking for fine architect, then this is the place for you. this church is spectacular inside and definitely outside too. if you are visiting Rockefeller Center you should visit it too it is only 2 minutes walking distance from Rockefeller Center and everybody is welcome regardless of what your religion is

    Gorgeous cathedral. If you visit New York, you have to check out this place. The interior of the cathedral is so beautiful. We came on a day when they had a ceremony and it was just beautiful.

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.
