Beautiful and Breathtaking

This was one of the most iconic and beautiful cathedrals I've ever visited. It is breathtaking and takes very little time to visit. Worth the trip.

The architecture here is mind blowing. You can feel the history the moment you walk in the doors. I can understand why the Kennedy's were married here! Makes me sad that there are so few buildings like this left in this country.

We visited the cathedral last year (2014) Tripadvisor will not let me go that far back. when my wife and I visited NYC. This is probably the biggest church I have ever seen. The craftsmanship in this building is amazing. It's like stepping back in time or feeling history when you walk in. It's really beautiful. The only downside was... More

We enjoyed this lovely church. Wonderful old part of town and as it should be, part of a walking tour. Definitely worth stopping by when you are near. Beautiful interior.

We stopped here as part of a walking tour, the church is lovely, and if you think you recognise it that's because they shot some scenes for the Godfather in here, cool!

Just walking by Radio City Hall then find St Patrick's Cathedral behind all renovation that is going. The building is spectacular although all scaffolding does make it difficult to see. Stunning!!!

the view of the altar is surrounded by scaffolding and workmen but if you can overcome the scaffolding and concentrate on the beauty of the church, you won't mind the dust and banging. Sit and listen to the organist play as the music echoes through the church.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
