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.
No matter what faith you believe in, St.Patricks is a must see for any visitor to NY. Elegant and serene, its majesty surrounds you. It is a work of art in beauty , and history and culture.
Anyone entering the church feels the Holy Presence and acts accordingly.
No charge except in the gift store. You can find any saint you are named after and read the history.
Come during one of the services and see the faithful in devoted prayer.
It feel very special inside it, the place is very beautiful inside-out and I just love going there. Everytime I am in the city, St. Patrick's Cathedral is the place I like to vesit first. I do recomende it to everybody that believes in God, to please go there !!
When you walk in you feel as though you are in Europe! The organ music was amazing and you could smell all of the burning candles all around you. The stained glass windows make you stop and stair and the whole place is certainly worth a stop, especially since it is free to get in.
St. Patrick's Cathedral is a phenomenal structure. Entering this church gives you an uplifting feeling. I thought this was a true religious experience that anyone would appreciate just by seeing the formidable architecture. I think it's just a sight you have to see and worth the experience.
this cathedral is one of the most awsome places I have ever been to. Even if your not religious, the sheer size, and artistic quality of this place is crazy!!! If you like older buildings with huge ceilings, youll love this place!!!! BTW, sorry usher, it was just there :)
The architecture is stunning! In this very busy city it is amazing to feel the peaceful tranquility that overcomes you as you walk in the door!
Each statue tells it's own story - and has a meaningful purpose for the many visitors' prayers. The historical and religious value is priceless - yet you are not asked to pay a penny! You make a donation of your means and choosing. (Try that at other historical landmarks!) There are people of all nationalities and walks of life who visit St. Patrick's at any given time. It is hearwarming to watch.
I especially recommend visiting during the Christmas holidays. There is added meaning during this time, and the decorations are awesome!
