This church has such beautiful architecture inside and out and it's such a peaceful place to stop in the middle of all the bustle.

You would not expect to see this Gothic church right in the middle of NY, but it is a nice mixture among the other buildings. Beautiful windows, worth paying a visit

I cannot describe the overwhelming beauty of this cathedral. We didn't attend mass or do the tour. It was great to take a moment to say a prayer in this environment while touring the city.

There was a mass taking place during our evening visit, but we were allowed to take photos and look at the beautiful stained glass windows, etc. as well as hear the pipe organ.

The most beautiful church I've ever seen. It was so nice to walk in off the busy streets of New York. We lit a candle for a loved one Which I'd recommend.

A sheer delight in visiting St. Patrick's Cathedral, not only from the exterior craftsmanship, but the interior is beyond any other church we visited in Europe in May. A must see.

Such a startlingly beautiful Gothic cathedral in the middle of Manhattan. We visited at night for amazing photos with warm lighting accentuating the beautiful details.

Yes! Its open to the public free of charge. All they ask is that you be respectful if mass is in session.
