    This cathedral is largest Roman Catholic church in the United States. The construction of the Gothic building were started by laying the cornerstone in 1858; in 1879 the building was dedicated. The Lady Chapel behind the high altar was added later, using the plans of Charles T. Matthews. The cathedral is of marble in the traditional cruciform shape and has 12 side chapels, many stained-glass windows, and a chime of 19 bells.

    We have been there on Christmass mass and it was great feeling. This magnificent church is the largest Catholic cathedral in the U.S.

    Wow!!!

    St Patricks cathedral looked slightly out of place amongst all the modern buildings and sky scrapers - I think thats what made it even more outstanding than it already is!!!

    Near the Rockefeller Center, this is one of the most famous churches in NYC. The decor is amazing. It's interesting how this gem is surrounding by tall modern buildings.

    Great attempt at imitating Cologne's Gothic cathedral.
    The cathedral looks somewhat out of place next to the Rockefeller Centre and the Olympic tower but nevertheless is beautiful.

    With the limited time we had there, our next stop was to St. Patrick's Cathedral. Another impressive Catholic church to rank up there with the ones I saw in England!
    It even has a gift shop in it!
