  • Superb cathedral that is discovered by shopping on 5th avenue to Central Park. The architecture is impressive and it does not ridiculous in the middle of all these towers. You must enter inside to admire its dimensions, its stained glass windows and all these small chapels. A must see

  • This is the most amazing of the classic cathedrals of my experience in NYC. My family and I love visiting with friends and family whenever possible. My office is a few blocks away so I can always swing by for midday mass if I have the urge. We love stopping in for some prayers and candle lighting! The history, the feeling and the love is always within the walls of this fantastic and amazing building. A must see if you are visiting NYC and a regular stop if you are a New Yorker! Love this place!
  • This is my third trip to New York, and the previous two trips, I ran out of time to pay a visit to St Patrick's Cathedral. This time, I'm glad I did. Words can not describe this magnificent building. It is awesome. The sheer size takes your breath away. The peace and tranquillity is unbelievable. The beautiful ornate stain glass windows are a sight to behold. They are a masterpiece in themselves. The architecture is phenomenal. The whole cathedral is breathtaking. It deserves to be seen inside, as well as a walk around the building outside. There are a constant stream of services, if you wish to partake. Security very helpful. You don't have to be a Catholic to appreciate the scale, beauty and splendour of this building. Definitely a place to visit when in New York. My only regret is that I didn't visit St Patrick's Cathedral sooner.
  • As a Catholic, I was very familiar with the splendor and magnificence of the mass and the building of the Cathedral. During the mass, the acoustic was amazing and the interior is quite stunning. The Cathedral didn’t’ look like this years ago when I visited. I learnt it was renovated. After the renovation, it is still a lovely fact that there is such a beautiful cathedral in the midst of the hustling and bustling city of New York. In summary, it's a great place for sober reflection, a place to sit and rest in the Lord's presence.
  • The most beautiful and awesome architecture of any cathedral outside of Rome. The size is impressive and the masonry and sculptures are incredible. The prayer and cross stations are very unique and worth a walk-around to see them all. Well managed. Constant service schedule so you can attend almost anytime. The diocese did a great job on the restoration over the past few years. Beautiful place to see no matter your religious background.
  • This is a very beautiful church. The stain glass art is beautifuI and the interior is clean. Be sure to take your time walking around the place. You almost forget that this place is in the middle of a bustling city. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful place.
