  • I am not religious by any means. However, visiting the St. Patrick's Cathedral was as close to God that I have ever felt. I can not explain it, but there's a presence about this place that is comforti...  more »
  • A must see in NYC. This magnificent Cathedral is awe inspiring. Newly renovated. A very special memory to have of NYC. Stain glass is incredible. And if you can attend a service, it's really special.  more »

  • 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!
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Pretty Cathedral! In the middle of city area, St. Patrick really stands out. No matter the outer or inside of the building. Whole building is delicate and elegant.
  • Sometimes God answers prayers. Dont pray as last resort - pray when life is good. Beautiful. Peaceful. Open. Welcoming. All religions seem welcome here. Must go. light a candle and say some prayers.
