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.

I visited St. Patrick's knowing pretty much nothing about it, but still with high expectations because I at least know that it's old, and being in the middle of bustling NYC makes me more curious about it. We went for the 10 AM mass (I think it was 10 AM, I don't remember, but it was in the morning) last... More

This cathedral is beautiful inside and out. It truly is a masterpiece of architecture. It's represent the old catholic traditions with tribute areas to the saints. A must if you can appreciate art and tradition.

Disappointed you could not appreciate the inside for all the renovations but still worth stopping in to visit and say a pray.

It's hard to imagine construction started on this back in the 1700s and it's still in great shape. If you're a movie fan you'll recognize the inside from the Godfather. It only takes a few minutes to visit and there are plenty of things to see in the area so if you're there, stop by and check it out. I... More

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.
