Despite any thoughts on theology, etc. (this is an Episopalian NOT Roman Catholic church) you must appreciate the beauty, care, and majesty of this building and understand the number of devoted faithful who built and maintain this church. Absolutely beautiful in its "Smokey Mary's" condition....More

This is a gorgeous Episcopalian cathedral in the heart of time square. The people are lovely, and the music is beautiful. Take the self-guided tour, and make sure to look in all the nooks and crannies.

This is a very beautiful church in Times square. The architecture is beautiful. The inside is also beautiful. You see this on your walks.

Stopped by there last week and very much enjoyed that they build everything else around it. The church is very small, yet very pretty. The inside is dark and has a very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere that you dont get at St-Patrick's Cathedral.

This Church , besides being architecturally beautiful, is the nicest church that I have ever attended. It is a Catholic Church and I attended Mass on Sunday morning. Having attended Masses throughout the US and Europe, this was, by far, the most pleasant and uplifting...More

If you are close to Times Square then you must stop in and visit. It is FREE. The Church was founded in 1868 and is very historic with one of the finest Gothic architectures in NYC. Definitely worth a visit. It is also a safe...More
