Looked awesome from the outside. Easy to walk by if you are in the area of Rockefeller Center and MoMA. I regret not going inside. We were told that St. Patrick's Cathedral is the most powerful Catholic church in the US.

This place is stunningly gorgeous! Well worth the trip to see. There was a Mass going on amidst all the tourists walking around. There was a good amount of construction/renovation underway while we visited.
