St. Patrick's Cathedral

New York, USA
4.8 / 81
19th century Catholic Cathedral in neo-Gothic style on Fifth Avenue. It is considered the most beautiful in the New World. The building looks quite unusual among the skyscrapers and shopping centers of the modern city, but stands out against the background of the “stone jungle”. The cathedral was built to satisfy the religious needs of Catholic immigrants, as the small church no longer accommodated everyone.
Address:5th Avenue, New York
Phone:+1 212-753-2261

Breathtakingly beautiful architecture. There was a service going on when we visited, but we were still allowed to come in and walk around to see the different worship areas. Gift shop is very small, but has some great stuff such as jewelry, many dif.. Read more »
Absolutely beautiful. I have a soft spot for stained glass so this church was gorgeous. The atmosphere was great, even if I’m not religious, I still felt like I was connected with god. As a music nerd, the organ playing was amazing as well. Ove.. Read more »
You can walk in and tour around during the day. The architecture is fascinating. Light a candle for someone if you are Catholic. It's quite nice and quiet. Take time to sit and reflect. Thought it was interesting that they had QR codes on th.. Read more »

I want to say it is the most beautiful cathedral in New York. Very photogenic place. But be quiet when you visit as other people are praying inside the cathedral. Take pictures from both outside and inside. And spend some time inside the cathedral, y.. Read more »

Once you step inside you marvel at the structure, various ornate stations for prayer, artwork and sculpture and the little chapel in the back. The entryway needs better traffic management for smoother ways to have people enter and exit. Security may .. Read more »

A true beauty in the heart of Manhattan. If you wish to spend an hour or two and around $10 (candle "donation" times 5 candles) then St Patrick's is an amazing choice. Pray, take pictures, relax, warm up. St. Patrick's is easily t.. Read more »
