St. Patrick's is such a spectacular cathedral that serves as an oasis in the middle of the hubbub of Mid-town. While it's often packed with visitors it's generally a quiet and contemplative space. It's worth multiple visits.

This is a nice Cathedral, the architecture is absolutely phenomenal, everything is well thought out and kept rightfully untouched. It wasn't too busy and I appreciate how they checked bags before you could enter. I also signed that virtual guestbook, which I think is pretty...More

Sadly, I was disappointed by my visit to this cathedral. Perhaps it was particularly busy as it was a hot day, but on entering the cathedral I was confronted by people, noise and a bag search table. I might be old fashioned - I like...More
