A big church in New York. We love this Irisch church. Go to The Top of The Rock And see The church from above! Amazing.

What a spectacular place. Breathtaking. This must be the most beautiful church ever. Very moving experience because of the history attached to it. Was taken back by the beauty of this spectacular place.

We visit St Patrick's each time we are in the city. Each time you see something for the first time. There are so many beautiful architectural features. It is truly a must see.

I had not been there for over 30 years. It has not lost any luster over the years. A wedding was taking place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon which made the visit even a little more special.

No tickets needed. I imagine that yes, anyone can attend. It was a very welcome feel to the church. There were some security people, but hundreds of.people wandering around the church while tons of other people attended mass.
