St. Patrick's Cathedral
Upper East Side
This spring and summer, enjoy a free, guided tour of one of New York City's most beloved landmarks, St. Patrick's Cathedral.
Learn about the Cathedral, which is currently undergoing a restoration, in person as a specially trained guide explores the history and traditions that have made St. Patrick's a favorite destination for millions of worshipers and visitors alike.
For example, did you know that the bronze doors of St. Patrick's Cathedral weigh over 20,000 pounds each but can be opened with one strong hand? During the hottest months of summer, these doors actually swell in the heat.
Address: 14 E. 51st St. Upper East Side, NY 10022
