This is still a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. You can still see many statues and beautiful parts of the cathedral but a lot of it is covered up for repair. Still worth the visit.

Being from upstate NY and then going to the NYC and wanting to see this beautiful church was a little disappointing. The church is in on a major repair. You can't see the a lot of the alter as it has lots of plastics all around. It looks like it is going to be a while of repairs. But still... More

I've visited St Patrick's Cathedral many times, but this visit was really awe-inspiring. The exterior has been cleaned so thoroughly that I actually did not believe it was St Patrick's until I got close enough to realize it could be no other church located right across from Rockefeller Center. Although the interior renovation is not finished (they are up to... More

We visited the cathedral the day after Christmas. It was absolutely beautiful and not nearly as crowded as I had expected. I don't know the exact details, but they are definitely doing some renovating or probably cleaning and repairs inside the cathedral. There is a small gift store just inside the front doors. You can still go into the pews... More

Very beautiful building inside and out, and worth a look inside whatever your faith. A peaceful , tranquil haven that greatly contrasts the streets outside! I love how the doors are usually just open for anyone to take a look inside. It's well worth a walk around.

They have been renovating the cathedral for several years now inside and out. Hard to see all its majesty with scaffolding everywhere but you can still see lots of beautiful stained glass, statues, columns and wood work.

Great stop as it was bitterly cold outside and this is a beautiful place. Unfortunately, much of the beauty is hidden under the scaffolding as they do needed repairs. Will need to come back when it is done!
