Myself and my beautiful wife were brought up Roman Catholic, however we aren't church goers, but that being said St. Patrick's Cathedral is an architectural wonder. We found ourselves in the area, and found that it was open, so we went in. I was immediately blown away at the beauty and the craftsmanship that went into the both the building,... More

Such a humbling and awesome experience to walk thru and see such amazing architecture. When you enter just be mindful that Mass is in progress, so be respectfully quiet and observe instructions.

We have often been past the cathedral but never been inside. This trip we took our young grand-daughters. The interior is beautiful but it was very crowded (being holiday season) which tended to take away some of the atmosphere - another visit at a quieter time needed.

A lovely cathedral in the heart of Manhattan. A welcome change in architecture from the skyscrapers that surround it.

Attended Sunday mass which happened to be held by the archbishop and the choir sang during this particular mass time. I found the mass to be quite enjoyable in terms of the message from the Archbishop where he talked about being a star (not like a celebrity but more like the star that lead the three wise men to baby...

We were so happy we attended a Sunday Mass at St. Pat's in Dec. and Cardinal Dolan led the Mass- he is an eloquent speaker- his homily about Advent was inspiring - it was a real joy to be there listening to him and to be in such a beautiful church. The music was also beautiful - a very moving... More

This is an iconic NYC stop. The building is just beautiful after the renovations, although they are still doing some interior work.

This Cathedral in the heart of 5th Ave is a gem in NYC that you need to visit when you in the area. The Cathedral is so beautiful and grand within the heart of Manhatten. I love the peace feeling of the inside the Cathedral before the end of my weekend trip to NYC

What's not to love for this iconic tourist trap. However, their is a significant spiritual ritual of lighting candles and praying in this beautiful church.

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.
