RECOMMENDED: 50 best New York attractions

This legendary house of worship counts Presidents, movie stars and business moguls among past and present attendees. While its intricate marble towers are a marvel of Gothic Revival architecture, St. Pat’s interior—including the Louis Tiffany–designed altar and spectacular rose window—is tremendous as both a feat of master craftsmanship and a source of spiritual inspiration.

Very Beautiful church and a nice place to go to escape the noise and lights of the city outside. It was tranquil but we weren't made to feel uncomfortable being tourists as we entered as mass was taking place.


There is nothing to say about this cathedral except it's gorgeous! The gothic architecture is perfect outside and inside. Walls are really clean and there are impressive details everywhere. In contrary of other churches, it's really luminous on the inside. I think it's my favorite church in New York.

A beautiful, beautiful church! I stop in sometimes just to find some peace. I haven't been to France yet so this is the closest I can come for now to seeing this gorgeous style of Gothic architecture. The inside is beautiful as well. Definitely go see it!

During the time we visited, the Cathedral was under construction but it hardly took away from the incredible Gothic Architecture or the intricate details of the House of Worship. I hope this doesn't sound corny but when you walk in it feels truly peaceful and you feel solemnly introspective. We felt truly blessed when we gave our donations, lit the candles and said our prayers.
