I have passed this Cathedral many times and never stopped but this time we did and how glad I am. It is stunning inside and even if you are not religious you must go and see it. We are not religious but have visited many well known cathedrals around the world and this is not a disappointment. Stands out on... More

My friends and I were out walking the streets, and we just happened to pass by. I said, "Let's go in here!!". Though I'd been here before, many years ago, it is so beautiful and grand that seeing it never gets old. We were there on a Saturday, and it wasn't too crowded. We had already had a busy week,...

It looks like the millions of dollars spent by the Diocese of NY on St. Patrick's Cathedral were well worth it. We also go to St. Patrick's for Mass when we visit the City, but we were underwhelmed by its old appearance. we were then temporarily disappointed during renovations. We are now totally pleased by its new look. Great job!

Lots of churches can be dark and gloomy, so what I really liked about this cathedral was that it has been really beautifully lit. The doors at the front are open letting natural light flood in and the ceiling is also lit with spotlights. This means you really get a chance to appreciate to appreciate the architecture in its full... More

St. Patrick's Cathedral is a piece of amazing architecture located in a very touristy spot in NYC. The inside is full of stained glass art and stunning architectural design. Defiantly worth a quick visit while in the area.

This is a stunning building opposite the Rockerfeller centre. The cathedral is a peaceful sanctuary in a hectic and busy city and a wonderful place to get your breathe and enjoy the architecture.

Last time we were here there was scaffolding everywhere now it looks very impressive good that even though there was a service in the main part visitors were still able to walk around the edges and see the interior

Prepare to be emotionally overwhelmed by the magnificent soaring arches of the ceiling, the beautifully designed awesome stained glass windows, the stunning alter, and the inspiring alcoves. Sit and meditate for a while on God and the universe. Light a few candles in remembrance of lost loved ones.

It is stunning to see a cathedral of the size of St. Patrick's in a place like Manhattan. It stands tall and massive right in front of the Rockefeller plaza and is recognizable instantly. We visited it during Christmas eve and was quite crowded. However, it is very beautiful from the inside with a great service. For a place as... More

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.
