A gorgeous and historic cathedral on 5th Avenue. Welcoming visitors at many hours of the day. Feel a sense of history and being welcomed simultaneously.

I've probably already mention this place, because it is so beautiful. There is not one part of the cathedral that is not worth seeing. Just make sure that you respect people worshipping when you are inside.

St. Patrick's Cathedral is magnificent. It makes you feel so small, in the same way oceans or mountains do. The architecture is intricate and powerful. This is a must see for anyone and everyone.

The Catholic Cathedral for the city of New York! Stark juxtaposition of architectural styling from the sky scrapers around it.

St. Patrick's Cathedral in the middle of Manhattan is a working Catholic church. It's neo-gothic architecture contrasts nicely with the rest of modern Manhattan.

This cathedral is an amazing work of art. The architecture is brilliant. The inside is just magnificent. A must see for the religious, and even the nonreligious. Just out of respect, remember to take your hat off inside.
