Awesome. What a gorgeous cathedral. We were,lucky enough to catch a Scottish wedding, kilts, bag pipes and A breautiful bride and handsome groom. You never know. We enjoyed the wedding and will explore a little more next time.

Located on 5th Ave in the heart of the City. The building is beautiful inside & out. Provides an oasis of peace and spirituality in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Gift shop is located just across the street.

Well maintained cathedral that has lots of interest to observe, whilst obvious maintenance is being carried out on a regular basis. Well worth a visit and a look around even to attend mass which is heavily attended.

Yes! Its open to the public free of charge. All they ask is that you be respectful if mass is in session.
Would I need a ticket for a baby who would be sitting on my knee for mass on St Patrick's day in St Patrick's cathedral New York?

According to the St. Patrick's Cathedral website, there is a noon Mass and later a 5:30 Mass using Sunday's liturgy. You do not need a ticket.
