"St. Patricks Cathedral" St Patrick's Cathedral Tip by scottishvisitor
St Patrick's Cathedral, New York City: 89 reviews and 156 photos
The original St. Patrick's Cathedral was designed by the architect James Renwick. Construction started in 1859 and the estimated time of construction work was 8 years - however the work was delayed by the interruption of the Civil war. I can only guess at the architects feeling on todays building sandwiched between high risers. There was a wedding in progress when we visited so no internal photography but it really is stunning inside.
