A Neo Gothic Roman Catholic Cathedral which also functions as the seat of the Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. Its corner stone was laid in 1858 and the cathedral was dedicated in 1910.
Inside the cathedral, you will find the Pietà statue which is three times the size of the famed Michelangelo's Pietà. The breathtaking windows were made by artists from all over the world (USA, England or France). Two of the altars that are located inside the cathedral were made by Tiffany and Company (the altars of St. Louis and St. Michael).
There are in fact two St. Patrick’s Cathedrals in Manhattan but the older one (located on Mulberry Street) is now referred to as the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral.
Both the entrance and the tours in St. Patrick's Cathedral are free of charge but some small donation is expected. Also, since it is an active church, you should behave respectfully.
Daily: 6:30am to 8:45pm*
*The Cathedral is open until 7 pm on the night of the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center.
