St Patrick's Cathedral, New York City: 89 reviews and 156 photos
Although most travellers do not think of New York as being a city of churches there are many fine religious buildings here. Probably most notable in St. Patrick's Cathedral. This neo-Gothic church was designed in 1859 and begun shortly thereafter. However it was not completed until 1903. As far as neo-Gothic cathedrals go it is probably a fine as one you are going to find in America. What probably is most capturing about the building is all the white marble. This place seems almost to glow. Still I found the place a bit sterile. This probably because of the lack of any real "art" inside of the church and nothing to so much to remind you that you are in one of the great world metropolises. Regardless it is considered to be one of the most important Catholic churches in the USA. It's congregation consists of 2,200 people. As you would expect for such a large city, the cathedral is huge.
The St. Patrick's Cathedral is open from 7am to 8:30pm daily.
