It's been under renovation and I will be back to see it fully and beautifully restored. The location is amazing and very convenient. Mass still ongoing despite the renovations. All the transportation all around manhattan either via bus or subway are minutes away from the church.

A lovely, big cathedral, this does get quite a few visitors. It is currently going through some construction work, so scaffolding up inside and out. Still a nice place to pop in and have a look.

currently under renivation but open. scaffolding everywhere. this should not deter your visit. sunday mass was special- the sermon was worth the trip to nyc itself. good old school catholic mass with choir and incense.

Beautiful from what we could see of the outside and inside. We didn't go inside because of all the renovation inside and out. Scaffolding everywhere. But we will check it out again on our next visit.

Under extensive renovation at the time of our visit, but still very awesome. We were able to see and hear Cardinal Dolan preach during our visit, which was great.
