Beautiful church to visit even if you are not catholic. It offers Neo-Gothic style with lots of details to take in. A peaceful place amid a crazy New York! I was there end of August 2015 and a lot of renovations going on - I believe that the Pope is schedule to visit the church in September!

Renovations on outside were done but still doing some inside. The place is indescribable. You can walk right in and look around. Very peaceful and a feeling of calm comes over you after stepping off the busy street and into this majestic building. You can visit as long as like. Some places are roped off, but you get to see...

I would be a regular visitor to St. Pat's if I lived in NYC. What a magnificent structure and visited by people with a vast variety of religious backgrounds or none at all. Take your time, soak in the emotion, sit in a pew and say a prayer.

St Patrick's Cathedral has it all: Two 300 foot bell towers, an elaborate facade, a long nave, a grand golden baldachin, shrine upon shrines, a Pieta, a beautiful lady chapel, a masterful organ, a beautiful rose window, amazing stained glass windows, and the Lady of Guadalupe. However, it's always crowded.

What a timely visit to St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, where preparations are being made for the upcoming visit of Pope Francis. The Cathedral has beautiful stained glass windows and ornately decorated alcoves and altars. There was a lot of activity inside, sprucing things up for the Pope's visit.

Walked by on a week night and the cathedral was lit up and the organist was practicing. Quite a site. Walk in and check it out.

Worth a pop in if you are in New York. Typically oversized but lots going on. Pay extra for taking pictures inside.

No matter what your religion, St. Pat's is such an icon and is in so much literature; so many movies, that you've got to see it. It inspires reverence and is a place I like to go and sit for a few minutes - half an hour in the midst of a busy day.

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.
