NYC's St. Patrick's Cathedral Photo/Image Gallery

Various photographs from previous years as taken at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown Manhattan.

Constructed between 1858 and 1879, St. Patrick’s Cathedral is the largest Roman Catholic cathedral in the United States and one of the biggest tourist attractions in NYC. Reportedly, over 3 million people enter through its doors each year.
There are many architectural wonders in this big city and this is quite a sight to behold. With it’s grand gothic look and spires that rise 330 feet above street level, it’s quite a beauty even at night as it’s lit by nearby lights.
Within are three organs, and a seating capacity of 2,200 people. It’s quite a favorite of New York City Catholics. The Archbishops of New York are buried in a crypt under the high altar. Their honorary hats, called galeros, hang from the ceiling over their tombs. Our last archbishop to be brought here was Cardinal O’Connor whom in the Spring of 2000 died of cancer. At his request, his final resting place would be alongside the tomb of Pierre Toussaint, a one-time slave who was under consideration for sainthood at the time.
