This Cathedral in the heart of 5th Ave is a gem in NYC that you need to visit when you in the area. The Cathedral is so beautiful and grand within the heart of Manhatten. I love the peace feeling of the inside the Cathedral before the end of my weekend trip to NYC

What's not to love for this iconic tourist trap. However, their is a significant spiritual ritual of lighting candles and praying in this beautiful church.

I was so amazed of the magnificence of the St. Patrick Cathedral. Such a really beautiful place that you must visit and sit and spend some time.

When I attended my first Mass at St. Patrick's I spent the entire first hour in awe staring at the architecture. It has undergone major restoration and is even better than it was before. Another "must see" if you are in the NY area regardless of your religion.

Christmas Morning I was able to attend mass at St. Patrick's. Gorgeous. Such a good feeling being at the mass. Security was high due to the holidays, but anyone was welcome and you could take photos without flash. Worth visiting. Highly recommended.

Anywhere we go my wife loves to visit the local church or Cathedral. I was taken aback by the beautiful display of Poinsettias at the altar. I have seen some in Ireland but these were outstanding there must have been a couple of hundred on both sides of the altar. I had no camera or phone with me so I... More

Our hotel was across the street. Go to the doors on the left to enter. No charge to go in, but women's handbags might be checked as you enter. $2 if you would like to light a candle. Architecture is stunning. We spent about half an hour to admire everything and take photos. Stained glass and rose window are gorgeous.... More

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.
