St. Patrick's Cathedral reviews
Even if you're not religious this is a must see Church. The side Chapels, the ceilings, the stained glass windows and the alter are all magnificent and well worth a visit. The only downside for me...

A true beauty in the heart of Manhattan. If you wish to spend an hour or two and around $10 (candle "donation" times 5 candles) then St Patrick's is an amazing choice. Pray, take pictures, relax, warm up. St. Patrick's is easily the #1 place I recommend people see in this area of Manhattan. Enjoyment is everywhere. The beauty, calmness and serenity that is experienced here is unmatched. Stop by, visit, "donate" a few dollars ($2 for a candle). If you can, donate a few more dollars, because what St. Patrick's offers and succeeds in doing so is provide a truly special and unique experience.
We had this as first place to visit in NYC, cathedral is very well maintained and you can witness history and fine piece of architecture right here. We booked the Audio tour which was super informative. I found it helpful to understand the belief and history of this place. Few places are meant for only prayers and camera is not allowed so just be careful to not disturb. You can lit a candle here as well. Tour will require 45 to 60 minutes. They offer tablets and headsets but I choose to my mobile. You can keep the app in phone and can use it again.
