“This is a great place to go to mass if you are catholic”
“The place is huge and breath takingly beautiful.”
Beauty. It is really a prestine and gorgeous place to go visit. If you have any spirituality you will hone in on it as soon as you enter the door. Huge ceilings and beautiful art and architecture make this a must see when visiting. It reminded me when I walked into the Duomo in Florence Italy.....a wonderful place
The largest Catholic cathedral in the United States, built in the French Gothic style..
Created over a span of three decades in the 19th century, St. Patrick's is the seat of the Archdiocese of New York. It's also one of the most popular attractions in the city. Located in the Fifth Avenue tourist mecca, near MoMA, Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall, the cathedral draws in over three million visitors a year.
What's the lure? Despite its French Gothic architecture, the church is unmistakably an American classic. Although some stained glass was created in England and France, most of the cathedral is the work of American artists. The altar, for example, was designed by Tiffany and Company. The rose window is considered one of the finest examples of 20th-century stained-glass design. Perhaps most fascinating of all, deceased archbishops of New York are buried in tombs beneath the high altar: Their hats hang from the ceiling above.
Will Take Your Breath Away!. Everytime I visit NYC, I always visit St. Patrick's Cathedral. The stained glass, the flying buttresses, and the etchings are just awe inspiring. It will literally take your breath away. You don't have to be a religious person to enjoy the sheer beauty of this attraction.
wonderful worship. Wow. This Cathedral is truly an inspiring place. Most photographs do not do it justice. Being there and following the strong vertical lines to the sky will truly lift up your spirit.
A wonderful rest of shopping and touring. One of the world's most beautiful churches in one of the world's busiest spots. A great retreat from the hubbub of New York.
