  • We stopped in to light a couple of candles for those in our family who passed away recently. The pipe organ was playing away and it was nice to walk around and see the cathedral.  more »
  • Special place for me. I come here to find my roots. I don’t like tourists but that doesn’t have anything to do with the stars, so I give this place a five.  more »

  • A NYC landmark not to be missed! After a multi year renovation, the interior and exterior have been magnificently restored to their original grandeur. View the altar from the rear before walking down each side to admire the numerous chapels lining the building's interior perimeter. From the altar area, turn around to take in the view of the choir loft and massive organ. If your timing is lucky, you might hear the organist playing, a welcome bonus! The Cathedral is to be enjoyed by worshipers and tourists alike!
  • Gorgeous!!! A definite must see...much more crowded than the St. Thomas church but bigger and just breathtaking. The intricate detailed work inside and out is AMAZING! It's free to get in and they let you take video and pictures of almost everything. My kids loved it as well.
