|About these ratings|
This sprawling cathedral sits amongst the hustle and distinctively secular bustle of Rockefeller Center. But that doesn't take away from its otherworldly vibe. Whether you're religious or just making an architectural pilgrimage, you can't help but be impressed by St. Patrick's.
One TripAdvisor user raves, "The building, the spiritual community, and the history and location are all worth experiencing! What a wonderful, awe-inspiring cathedral!" Previous vacationers suggest you visit at Christmastime to really see the church in all its glory.
If you're going to subway to St. Patrick's, then take the B, D, F or V train to the Rockefeller Center stop. You can visit from 6:30 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. each day, plus there's mass every day of the week. Visit the church's official website for specific service times. And if you don't have the time or energy to tour St. Patrick's, keep in mind that you can still get a great bird's eye view from the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at Rockefeller Center.
