Beautiful, awe inspiring even with renovations being done inside and out. Mass is open to public so if you want to catch a mass, make sure to check times. Gift shop also had great selection of items with various price points.

Even if you have no desire to see a Cathedral talk yourself into stopping. St. Patricks is beautiful and full on history. Take 20 to 30 minutes of your time to explore. You can choose to take the tour or not. We didn't and still seen alot by just walking it our self.

Oh my goodness! This is one of the most amazing buildings I've ever been in. It's just breathtaking. I was so surprised that tourists could just walk through while they were having Mass. But... I'm glad we could. It's worth going in.

Saint Patrick's is architecturally beautiful - inside and out. But they do nothing to contain tourists or insure this remains a place of worship. We visited recently, and there was a wedding taking place, while hundreds of tourists walked around, chatting and taking pictures. What a mess! They also have hung television monitors eveywhere, which ruins the sacred-ness of this place. It's truly awful.

St. Patrick's is a landmark and a must visit for all, no matter what your spiritual believe. The architecture is amazing. There are many smaller altars and chapels around the perimeter. Attending a Mass or service here is spectacular, particularly if the Choir sings. I was blessed to attend a wedding. It was spectacular!
