Amongst all the skyscrapers sits a wonderful cathedral. The new statue of Mother Teresa has magnificent detail and worth going inside for, alone.

I've been to St Patrick's Cathedral several times. Last weekend we went to a wedding there. What a magnificent structure. It rivals the great cathedrals of the world. It is massive, as well. The wedding was in the center of the church. Although there were hundreds of tourists throughout the structure, it is so large, we barely noticed them. If... More

I've been to some churches before in Spain. This was pretty nice, considering it's NYC. There was a wedding going on at the time so we didn't get free roam but It's nice if you are a religious person or a fan of churches.

A Must when we were there!! Attend mass that morning and very emotional due to the overwhelming size of the cathedral. They don't have any restrooms, so plan well, or you will need to go across the street for the restrooms. A location this magnificent needs to have service for elderly, disable persons that need to use the restrooms.

It is a beautiful church, the scene of so many state occasions and funerals - worth a visit. People are respectful and quiet so as an oasis from all the noise in the street, it is a good place to sit and think.

Beautiful cathedral, well worth a visit. Went to the 10.15 service on the Sunday morning, and not disappointed. Lovely service and lots to see inside the cathedral.

Although not as large as some of the cathedrals in Europe it is still imposing and beautiful, inside and out. Across the street from the Rockefeller Centre it's a cool contrast in commerce and theology. It's worth a walk around the back for a different perspective.

Attended Mass last Sunday at 1:00pm. There are seven Masses provided on Sunday's so you have many choices as to which time works best for your busy schedule. This cathedral is beautiful! Adults as well as children are welcome at all the Masses. This is a family friendly church. Be sure to visit while in New York City. It is... More

This historic church will take your breath away. Gothic Style building. Peaceful to take a load off your feet while strolling 5th Avenue. Nice to sit and reflect and take in the view of gothic style.

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.
