Full description
Explore St Patrick's Cathedral, the largest decorated gothic-style Catholic cathedral in the United States. Taking up an entire city block, the cathedral first opened in 1879 and is considered one of New York City’s finest buildings. 

Enter the Cathedral using the Gold TourPass line, which gives you FastPass access, to receive your multi-lingual audio guide. You can also download the tour onto your own personal device and use your own personal headphones.

Once you are inside the cathedral, the experience is self-guided. You can listen to the audio tour and explore the Cathedral at your own pace. The audio tour is narrated by Cardinal Timothy Dolan and is approximately 1 hour long.

It is recommended to allow up to 1.5 hours as you may wish to pause the audio tour at times to enjoy features like the Lady Chapel, the towering twin spires, and the 9000 lbs bronze doors which can be opened by a single person.

You can also explore the main altar, the stained glass windows and the Pieta sculpture which is 3 times the size of Michelangelo's. The Cathedral has 21 altars and 19 bells, each named after a different saint. Babe Ruth, Andy Warhol and Robert F. Kennedy all had memorial masses here.
