I took my mum here when she visited NYC as she is Catholic and I knew she would appreciate it. She was very impressed, as was I. Although under pretty much constant restoration, the architecture is magnificent. The stained glass windows are huge and all around the cathedral. We made a donation and lit some candles and walked around to... More

There are a number of reasons I detracted a higher rating. First, large portions of the interior are under construction. Not what you should expect of a major NYC landmark. Second, photos are allowed, but not everywhere. Huh? I guess however, this is still a must see.

We came across St Patrick's purely by accident whilst wandering around New York, what a beautiful, picturesque building. We wandered in and it is undergoing some restoration work and a lot was hidden by the scaffolding,. However, it is still worth a visit and some beautiful architecture to see. Well worth taking some time to see.

St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC and the Duomo in Milan, Italy, not forgetting Notre Dame in Paris, are the three most impressive Cathedrals I have visited, The architecture of each is special, as is the feeling of peace, in all of them,. especially at times when they are not crowded, A Must visit for visitors, more than once, better.

A beautiful cathedral. The statues and altars were stunning. Such a feeling of awe as we walked through the church. Peopled moved about quietly and at a timed pace. Will go again.

This Cathedral is an absolutely divine experience. The intricate facade welcomes you into a lovely, serene church, with a massive organ and well-made alcoves celebrating various saints. The stained glass panels and sculptures can't be missed.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
