  • My review is completely based as a tourist to this church. First of all, if you are tired entering those church in Europe that requires an admission fee, you should definitely try this one. So relaxing, so welcoming, nothing is locked, and nobody is going to ask you what are you here for. Just enjoy a ten minutes divine moment. Secondly, the church has a school "attached to the building", students and staff here are super nice. They are so welcome that someone just enter for restroom and a sip of water is fine. Absolutely incredible place to give yourself a moment to think.
  • Stunning cathedral. Dominates the New York City skyline from the North. They provide many cultural institutions a home. If you ever get a chance to attend a concert in the 10th floor concert space, do so. Magnificent views.
  • Grand exteriors! Gives a good feeling
  • Incredibly beautiful cathedral, it's a pity that you need to reserve in advance to get to the top
  • My family is blessed to have and be a part of this church over the years. It is the best place for ceremonies, worship, and a sanctuary--I am so grateful for it!
