Love St. Patrick's, was a mass going on while we were there which made me a bit unconfortable walking around. However, the plus was that we got to hear the choir which was a plus. Lit our candles, admired the sights and will visit again next time.

St. Patrick's is a beautiful cathedral and well worth a visit. Just wander around the cathedral and view the beauty of it. If you have time you can even catch mass.

Last time we visited it was full of scaffolding but this time it was beautiful. The stonework was fantastic. As usual, there were police inside and we lit some candles.

Wasn't in St. Patrick's for very long, but it was so beautiful and gigantic! The place is serene in the chapel area and busy in the foyer where all visitors are taking pics. You can enjoy a nice view of the inside any time between 6:30 am and 8:45 pm. Even if you don't go in, the outside is just... More

It's a cathedral. Yes a pretty one but we have plenty of beautiful ones full of history back home. We popped in to light a candle after having bag searches.

We visit St Patrick's every year when we visit NY. The building just had a make-over cleaning a few years ago and it sparkled then, A couple of years later and it is already feeling the soot from the city. The inside is incredible. A must see. You can stay as long as you like. Be ready to have your... More

There are many Cathedrals in the world and this one is OK but not great. If you really like this kind of architechture go to Europe and visit England, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. This is a copy of a European style. Many things in New York are world class but this isn't one of them. It's average by European... More

We were here a few years ago during the renovations, before the Popes visit, when the interior was filled with scaffolding. This time we got to see the Cathedral at its finest. Truly a magnificent site.

The last couple times I was in New York City this church had renovations going on. This time it was done. It looks great inside and out. Definitely worth looking.

Great 12:00 Service. No choir but terrific Pipe Organ music. The Gothic Cathedral is beautiful. Get there early for mass to assure your view is not from behind a column.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
