Absolutely impossible to not be moved when you walk in and see the stunning views and realize that this is not a monument. Its a place that you can still go to worship in the heart of Manhattan.

We attended mass on a Saturday, it was beautiful - so uplifting. Right now there is a lot of construction inside but you can still see the beauty of the church.

It was under major restoration when I visited in March but still a stunning site. I recommend going to the Top of the Rock and seeing the cathedral from on high as well. There are two gift shops - on inside and one around the block if you are looking for a gift or personal memento.

Throngs of people, strolling through a beautiful church, snapping photos, of statues and saints, lighting candles and ticking it off their to see list. Under renovation at present. Churches should be treated as places of prayer, not photo opportunity moments and money garnering enterprise. By the way, the church is beautiful.

It's currently being renovated, so some of the windows are not visible. But, you can still feel the grandeur and serenity, so it's worth a visit.

When we were there it was under construction. But it was still such a beautiful church. You don't need to be a Catholic to appreciate the beauty of the place.

On my visit to NYC two years ago I was incredibley disapointed at missing this. It had quite a lot of work being done to the outside and we ended up skipping it. I made a promise to myself I would NOT miss it this time. AWE INSPIRING. Dramatic. IMPACTFUL. Reverent. Its a must do, must feel. Sitting in the... More

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.
