I’m not catholic but I visit St Pats every time I’m in Manhattan just because of how beautiful the church is. I recommend if you’ve never seen it.

St Patricks is a must see for the amazing architecture and historical perspective. We attended the noon mass on a Sunday which is just okay. I would recommend going to the 10:30 that is more elaborate with the choir and Cardinal presiding.

No tickets needed. I imagine that yes, anyone can attend. It was a very welcome feel to the church. There were some security people, but hundreds of.people wandering around the church while tons of other people attended mass.
