St. Patrick's Cathedral

Located at 460 Madison Avenue, St. Patrick’s Cathedral is the largest gothic-style Catholic Cathedral in the country, as well as the seat of Timothy Cardinal Dolan, the archbishop of New York. Completed in 1878, St. Patrick’s Cathedral welcomes more than five million visitors each year who come to take part in mass, light candles, attend choir and organ recitals, participate in public programs and view the art and design of the building. Before entering, take in the white marble exterior, pinnacles and 330-foot twin spires reaching toward the sky. Inside explore the many chapels of the church, each one named after a different saint. Additionally, the Rose Window is 26 feet in diameter and showcases a masterpiece of 20th-century century stained glass art. Note: If you’re interested in visiting the crypt where all the Archbisophs of New York are buried you’ll need to make an appointment.

For those hoping to take pictures, avoid visiting during mass times as photography is not allowed. Currently, a $175 million restoration is being planned for St. Patrick’s Cathedral and is set to be completed in about three years.

Free tours of St. Patrick’s Cathedral are offered. Call Roberta Shea at 212.355.2749 ext. 829 to learn about upcoming tours or schedule one of your own. To get to the St. Patrick’s Cathedral, take the B, D, F or V subway to the Rockefeller Center stop. Saint Patrick’s is open daily from 6:30am to 8:45pm.
