St. Patrick's Cathedral
This massive cathedral, situated across from Rockefeller Center on Fifth Avenue, is the largest Catholic cathedral in the United States. With its two soaring 330-foot spires, St. Patrick's Cathedral is also one of the city's most spectacular architectural sights. Construction on the neo-gothic structure had started in 1850 and completed in 1878. Inside, it boasts a seating capacity of 2,500, numerous altars and stained glass windows, and a giant organ with over 7,300 pipes. Services are held throughout the day, and many New Yorkers stop in for a moment of serenity in their otherwise hectic lives.
Everything!! The energy is overwhelming. Spiritually it's the place to
go to really get a preview on what Heaven feels like..
The Art and Architecture is by far the best. All those celebrations..
Definitely a must see on your trip to N.Y.
If possibel go all the way and attend Mass... Yeah....
Can't wait to go back..
The chapel in the back is so so peaceful and quite touching spiritually.
You can really talk to God...
It was amazing to walk into this place. Absolutely beautiful. We also were able to see a wedding take place and that was really touching. My husband and I were with our friends who are from NY and they loved seeing it too. And if you are seeing the city on a budget like we were stopping here won't hurt your wallet a bit. It is free to see.
So add it to your list...it is worth it!
It was Saturday May 10th, 2008 about 3:30 pm and a Wedding was taking place. Visistors were still welcome. The interior awe inspiring beauty will abosrb you. You can pray to your Higher Power in this cathederal no matter whom you are. I recommend this visit, the Church is really smaller than the surrounding buildings - but the inside is taller.
We loved the architecure and Christmas scenes with gorgeous decorations.
The quite serenity coupled with magnificent beauty emitted a spirtual reverance that was deeply felt.
We will visit St. Patrick's Cathedral again.
This church is so magnificant. I went during Christmas time and I was so amazed at the gradeur of the church itself. Whether you are Roman Catholic or not; the church is a great place for art lovers to go and see. The church shows off great gothic architecture.
This place is a must for any traveller.
