St. Patrick's Cathedral Featured

One of the most famous cathedrals in the city, a visit to New York wouldn't be complete without a trip to St Patrick's.

by Catherine Hamilton

A visit for both religious and nonreligious visitors alike, this neo-Gothic NYC landmark continues to draw in visitors since its opening in 1879. Construction on the cathedral began in 1858, subsided during the Civil War and then resumed in 1865. Take a look inside of this stunning and historic masterpiece. We recommend visiting during a service to hear the majestic and historic organs; these organs consist of 9,000 pipes. If possible, visit during the Christmas season and revel in the breathtaking Christmas decorations and spirit within St. Pat’s.
