If you need an alternative to St. Patricks, try walking up Fifth 3 blocks to St. Thomas. Beautiful architecture, lovely stained glass windows and full of spirituality and peace.

I am always looking for a beautiful church. This on Fifth Ave is in stark contrast to hustle and spirituality of consumption surrounding it. Decorated with stained glass and statues of saints yet reserved and uncluttered as most Anglican churches. Worth the stop.

I found this beautiful Episcopal Church very calming. It is near St. Patrick’s but has a totally different feel. It is warm and inviting but not bright. I loved sitting in the church drinking in the atmosphere.
