Why locals love it

This 135-year-old, Neo-Gothic style cathedral has become a prominent landmark in New York City. It takes up one entire city block, and accommodates 2,200 people. It's a magnificent structure to admire, inside and out, and, despite the busy streets surrounding it, the cathedral provides a peaceful sanctuary.

Why you should visit it

It's a National Historic Landmark that dates back to the 1850s, and is still active today with daily masses and special music events. Highlights include the stained glass windows, the altars, and various art works.
