“Light a candle for a dearly departed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

It's a very beautiful place. But its most important function is an oasis of prayer in mid-town.

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

The most beautiful churches I have ever seen were in Italy. That being said, this is one of the most beautiful churches I have been to in the United States. If you are in New York City and have extra time on your hands it’s a great place to visit.

“Good to see if it is in your way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

I don't think it is worth a special trip but drop by if it is in your way. The church is big and has lots of stained glass. No question it is a part of New York. However, it is not much different than or more spectacular, say, similar sized churches in England.
