We had passed this many times before I had never stopped in. We were staying nearby and decided to give this a look. We had to stop in the nearby St. Patrick's Cathedral but never Visited this church. We realized that we missed a lot by not visiting this. This is a beautiful example of a Gothic cathedral and since it is located in the middle of fifth Avenue in the heart of the shopping district many people like ourselves, pass by. This is a mistake. This is a church that should be visited and explored it is an architectural beauty in New York City.
