This cathedral is situated in the middle of Manhattan and close to other tourist' spots. The church is under renovation. There are plenty of saints' statues and candles to lit. Taking pictures is allowed but discouraged during mass. The main entrance is in Fifth Avenue.

I go to St. Patrick's Cathedral often. The architecture, stained glass and size of the cathedral are overwhelming, and breath taking but add Christmas into the mix and it's something that will stay in your heart and mind forever. It's not even something that you...More

Attending a Service there is an experience any Catholic will find deeply special. It was a weekday, noon, not crowded, not noisy, it was a real religious feeling of communion. Outside was the Swift, non-nonsense business of New Yorkers going on with their lives. It...More

So much history here, it was still under construction when i was last there but I suspect it is all done now. I have visited St. Patricks over a 100 times over the years, it never disappoints.

I highly recommend visiting St. Patrick's Cathedral at least once. It is free to go inside and look around/take pictures. Plus, having a cool place to sit and reflect after encountering the hustle & bustle of NYC isn't bad either. Enjoy.

Yes!! It is very traditional—the crèche is awesome and the choir sang songs all would be familiar with! Can’t believe your pastor is so .... does he not know about the Advent Candles??? Hope you see St Patrick’s someday!
