Were forced to visit via St Patrick's due to the Columbus Parade. What an unexpected delight. Wonderful architecture and culture. The attendants were most welcoming and courteous even with the big crowds. A real haven in the big city.

Had to go see my name Saint church and was not disappointed. Been to a lot of cathedrals and churches in my time and was quite taken by how wonderful this place is. Must see, even my young children wanted to stay for mass and we normally do not.

Awesome. What a gorgeous cathedral. We were,lucky enough to catch a Scottish wedding, kilts, bag pipes and A breautiful bride and handsome groom. You never know. We enjoyed the wedding and will explore a little more next time.

I found this great church and was amazed at the beauty in the middle of a city of boring concrete. Like finding a diamond on the beach. I could not attend mass but wished I could.....WOW!!

Located on 5th Ave in the heart of the City. The building is beautiful inside & out. Provides an oasis of peace and spirituality in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Gift shop is located just across the street.

Visited on a Sunday when mass was being held. Atmospheric, respectful and moving, even with huge crowds. Lit candles and said prayers.

...as a practicing Catholic I was dismayed that tourists are allowed to wander around during Mass (we went both on a Sunday and a weekday and it was the same). I couldn't help but think of the scriptures where Jesus drove the moneychangers out of the temple (Matthew 21:12, John 2:15). Sacrilegious and disappointing in that way.

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.
