Cathedral fronting 5th Avenue pretty close to Rockefeller Plaza. It's big and its busy. It's one of those places where, if you are passing, then pop in.

A must to visit if you like uplifting architecture. As this is a church, please visit when there is no mass on. It was a lovely visit that i will remember for years to come.

Now is the time to go see the inside of St. Patrick's Cathedral. There is no unsightly scaffolding to mar the beauty of this fine house of worship. The stained glass is gorgeous everywhere you look. Don't forget to look for the pipe organ in the balcony. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to be there during a service, but it's definitely... More

This is a gem in the middle of the madness of Fifth Avenue. It is definitely worth stopping by to admire the beauty and enjoy the peace in St. Patrick's cathedral.

I go to mass here about twice a year. It is such an amazing cathedral, but it is even cooler to worship the Lord with such a diverse group of people. God bless the people of St. Patrick's.

The cathedral is worth a visit and if you go when music is played for a service the sound is amazing. A board at the entrance informs you of times and when music is played.

This Cathedral is one of my favorites, seems like a smaller version of St. Paul's in London. The detail and finish are something you should pay attention to, and the church is also a great place to capture a few moments of peace and solitude in the middle of a busy NYC tour.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
