Visiting St Patrick's Cathedral is an experience worth taking while in NYC. It is beautiful architecture with magnificent stained glass windows. You've seen it on TV and you can experience it in person for free. One of the best places on 5th Avenue.

Wow. Such amazing beauty - the architecture, the stained glass, etc. All very beautiful. It wasn't my first trip to the cathedral but it is so worth the visit.

Looking beautiful after its recent renovation. Smack in the middle of the busy city but once you enter perfect calm,no matter your religious beliefs.

We have seen so many events taken place at this church and yet it so impressive to see in person and take in all the glory.

This cathedral is worth visiting again if you haven't seen it since the entire exterior has been cleaned to a point where likely looks better than it did when it was only 10 years old. There is a still a little work going on in...More

Firstly, don't get me wrong, this is a lovely building. However, I just feel like it is not in the same league as something like St Peter's in Rome, or St Paul's in London, or the Duomo in Florence. It's definitely worth visiting though.

We didn't plan on stopping here, We were close so stopped in just to see it, didn't take a tour. It was amazing - really hard to believe that we have cathedral in the US that rival those of Europe.

A must see if you are visiting NYC for the first time. A truly beautiful and famous cathedral with absolutely beautiful stained glass windows, religious statues and artwork.

Came to have a look around the cathedral just as a massive thunder-storm started. The place was full of people sheltering when everyone's cellphones went off at once with a Citywide Flood Warning. I'd never had one of those before - quite exciting. The cathedral...More

Beautiful cathedral. All the scaffolding is gone now. It was so disappointing that they must have security in a place of worship.

Yes! Its open to the public free of charge. All they ask is that you be respectful if mass is in session.
Would I need a ticket for a baby who would be sitting on my knee for mass on St Patrick's day in St Patrick's cathedral New York?

There are no fees/tickets - capacity may be limited (first come, first seated) and there is a security desk where bags are checked at the entrance.
We would like to attend mass on Dec10, 2016. What times are masses said on that date and do we have to have a ticket?

According to the St. Patrick's Cathedral website, there is a noon Mass and later a 5:30 Mass using Sunday's liturgy. You do not need a ticket.
