For its magnanimous size and detailed arches, the interior of the church is wanting. The colors are monotonous and the size and height alone are the only thing that is impressive.

Love this place and it is always listed on my trips to NYC. I have lit hundreds of candles over the years and hope to light many more.. I do not like the visitors that forget that this is a place of worship and talk loudly or are rude and pushy.

One of my favourite places in NYC. I'm devoted of St. Patricks, so here I can pray and thank. Also, I think it's a good tour even if you're not Roman Catholic, because the architecture here it's simply amazing. It's worth to know.

The church and the stained glass was so beautiful! It was truly amazing. We only stopped in quickly and walked around for about 15 minutes in the afternoon because there was no tour or mass. If you're really interested in St. Patricks, I would suggest that you find a mass time because it's a lovely church. Also, I would suggest... More

Beautiful to walk through. The people there were very friendly. I am glad we didn't miss seeing this beautiful place. I loved the stained glass. People are permitted to walk through and take photos, light a candle (they have boxes for a few dollars to pay for the candles if you choose to donate). Even though this is a church,... More

This church is open to the public and is a really lovely old church. It was nice to wander round and appreciate its beauty. It is a busy place but it didn't feel crowded. It was very hot outside but cool inside the church. You can pay to light a candle and they do have security who check bags.

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.
