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

Built in the early 1800s by a poor, immigrant community. The cathedral provides a window into Irish life in the city before the mass migration of the 1840s. its location tells a bit of the history of the city itself. The wilderness of the far north (50th Street) had not been fully conquered. The physical plant is beautiful. Stay for... More

Aside from its institutional presence and great architectural design, I attended a mass here and it was very inspiring. The priest gave a wonderful homily and the choir sang beautifully.

My wife and I visited Old St Patrick's Cathedral in Little Italy during our recent trip to NYC. It is a beautiful, somewhat small cathedral church with much of the old Irish influence in the main altar. Obviously predates the later Italian inhabitants of the area. If in the area, it is worth a brief visit. A good place for... More

went to the one at 5th avenue and it was still under renovation so much of it was blocked by the pillars and construction stuff.

It's a smaller cathedral just north of Little Italy. I don't remember that much about it except that there wasn't any air conditioning and it was a hot day. As long as people in a cathedral worship the One true God then it is a beautiful cathedral.

Tucked away in Little Italy and worth the search. Gorgeous church with amazing history. Definitely worth the visit and peacefully quiet prayer space
