  • Truly beautiful, especially by day with sunlight streaming through the stained glass windows. A moment of calm and quiet in the City That Never Sleeps...

  • Such an amazingly beautiful & expansive Holy space! And open to the public - who were respectful and quiet. There were many places to pray & light candles. The ornate sculptures of the stages of the cross & of several saints made it educational for even the most devote Christian. I especially enjoyed hearing the pipe organ bellow though the space. Definitely a must see.
  • This iconic New York landmark receives approximately five million visitors a year, The striking architecture is wonderful. I didn’t had the opportunity to go inside because it was closed for a private event but the outside of the is a religious experience. The cathedral was built in the half of the 19th century to symbolize the rise of religious freedom and tolerance in America.
