My parents and I went in late August and it was under renovation.
I would have given 5stars but alot of the beautiful artwork and stain glass was hard too see with all the work going on. Still its a must see when in nyc.

This is an amazing site to visit. Pity there was construction occurring inside the building, but the spirit and essence of the cathedral was well captured. The design of the building is very nice and reflects the expert craftmanship of the builders. Despite the large masses of people, the flow of human traffic was quite organised.

The outside of the cathedral was under construction, but the inside was just as amazing as it always was. A must see when in the city!

Although scaffolding inside and out, this is some cathedral. We visited twice - second time for mass which was very memorable. Lot of staff to help the flow of traffic,yet it is still possible to maintain an atmosphere of serenity and holiness. Looking forward to returning some day to the finished job:)

This is truly an awesome place of worship. The fine work in the shrines, the stained glass and the baptismal are worth the time it takes to see it all. One can't help but admire the painstaking detail in all the craftsmanship. Even our non-catholic friends were awed by the reverence of the place. Can't wait to go back and see it after the renovation is completed. Planning on it already.
