The Frick Collection is an art museum located in the Henry Clay Frick House on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. It houses the collection of industrialist Henry Clay Frick. Henry Frick started his substantial art collection as soon as he started amassing his fortunes. A considerable amount of his art collection is located in his former residence "Clayton" in Pittsburgh, which is today a part of the Frick Art & Historical Center. Another part was given by his daughter and heiress Helen to the Frick Fine Arts Building, which is on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. The Frick is one of the pre-eminent small art museums in the United States, with a high-quality collection of old master paintings and fine furniture housed in six galleries within the former residence. Frick had intended the mansion to eventually become a museum. Many of the paintings are still arranged according to Frick's design. Besides its permanent collection, the Frick has always organized small, focused temporary exhibitions. The collection features some of the best-known paintings by major European artists, as well as numerous works of sculpture and porcelain. It also has 18th century French furniture, Limoges enamel, and Oriental rugs.

    Located on Fifth Avenue 51st street , across from Rockefeller Center, the sanctuary is the largest Gothic Catholic cathedral in the US. This international landmark, dedicated in 1879, welcomes more than five million visitors each year. With its 330-foot spires, it is one of the cityโ€™s most spectacular architectural sights. Inside, it boasts a seating capacity of 2,400, numerous altars and stained glass windows, and a giant organ with 7,855 pipes.

    A majestic NYC Landmark. Light a candle in remembrance of someone or something near and dear while there, and take in the grandeur of this magnificent, historical cathedral. Great location in the heart of NYC. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit here.

    What a stunning building. We loved the architecture. You can literally feel the history walking around the cathedral. Its very easy to spot as it stands out so much as you approach. The inside took my breath away.

    As an Irish-American Catholic, I have truly come to love coming to St. Patrick's Cathedral. The Priests who preside over the affairs of the Church are excellent and really like to make you feel welcome. Plus the beauty of the Church is just breathtaking and the restoration project has been phenomenal. We've been Parishioners now for a year and a half and there's no other Church that I'd rather be coming to. We love it. Also my daughter can and does pray to Mother Mary. She's getting to be quite the astute adherent. We will keep coming for years to come.

    I've never been to a cathedral before. This was my first time. St. Patrick's cathedral... Just wow... So much "awe" is all I could think of. Incredibly spacious, I didn't know what to expect but I was not disappointed. I liked the windows of the cathedral, their design seemed... Pulchritudinuos

    Beautiful cathedral that is open to the public. You can come in and pray at any of the altars, light a candle, or just sit in the pews and enjoy the beautiful architecture. I loved being able to view the stained glass on the inside, as well as the different saints that are carved in stone. There is a beautiful mosaic.

    Such a breathtaking view and wonderful place to be. I couldn't stop staring at the architectural design of the structure, it must have been an awesome feeling when construction was completed. I stood across the road to capture some nice shots which wouldn't be complete without a yellow cab or two in the foreground.

    Beautiful downtown NYC Cathedral. St. Patrick's is a beautiful, classic, European Gothic style cathedral. We have visited dozens of churches and cathedrals here in the U.S. and in Europe and St. Patrick's can hold its own with most. It is beautiful inside and out and unlike many NYC downtown churches you can walk completely around this one and appreciate the outside as well as the inside. It has gorgeous stained glass and a beautiful pipe organ. It is open and welcoming to the public. My reason for the four stars instead of five was that perhaps it is too welcoming. Inside, despite the beauty, it felt more like a tourist attraction than a church. It was crowded, which is not unusual for a large European cathedral, but it was also noisy. There was little feeling of awe or reverence. The balance between welcoming and maintaining reverence is perhaps harder to achieve in New York. That's not necessarily a criticism, but simply an observation on the personality of the city. New York is a busy, noisy, boisterous, beautiful city. St. Patrick's was much the same the day we visited. We did not take a tour but would have liked to had we more time. If we ever visit NYC again I would certainly go back.

    This New York City Institution is one of the finest destination locations on Manhattan Island in New York. . One of the first things you must encounter is a well trained group of ushers for comfort and peace of mind. Please note that handbags, backpacks, luggage and the like will be respectfully yet carefully inspected. Safety and security and our well being is a critical priority in New York and The House of God. . The edifice has been recently restored to it's original beautiful. Many, many years of grim, soot, and the usual wear-n-tear on any great building, such as Saint Patrick's Cathedral, has been removed, refreshed and renewed. An additional Memorial Garden and plantings around The Cathedral should be visited, too. . The architecture is breathtaking to many. However, the core reason this Special Space for God to Dwell does exist is for Roman Catholic Christian Worship of the Divine Trinity and Holy Mother Church as a loving, constantly forgiving Marian Devotion. St. Patrick is honored by the construction and naming rights, along with individual chapels to many saints that surround the Cathedral. Our Lady Mary, who gave birth to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is highly honored as a woman that did not say no to the Angel tasked with God's decision. While Mary is not a God or godly as such, she is revered as a tender, nurturing and loyal infinitely loving mother figure for the Roman Catholic Church on Earth, because having God's Earthly Mother as our local human Patron in Heaven can not possibly be a bad thing. In fact, Martha Stewart would and has said: "It's a good thing." . Rest room lavatories are a challenge. Olympic Tower's Atrium Public Space is under renovation. So, Saks Fifth Avenue, the well-known Department Store, has very clean restrooms on their upper floors on the 50th Street side of the Cathedral. Rockefeller Center's "Atlas" Building at 630 Fifth Avenue, across Fifth Avenue from The Cathedral, has public restrooms on the Lower Concourse Level strategically placed for their visitors, guided tours, restaurants and shops. The Lotte New York Palace Hotel on the Madison Avenue side of the Cathedral has limited accessibility to restrooms on their Second Floor Event Space and elsewhere, but security precautions are in place. The Cathedral has but one wheelchair accessible lavatory in the Cathedral proper, which is reserved for the physically challenged and impaired. . There is a Gift Shop near the 50th Street Front and Side Entrances in St. Patrick's Cathedral. However, there is also a larger freestanding Gift Shop on the 51st Street side of The Cathedral, between Madison & Fifth Avenues, across from The Parish House and Rectory. Mass Intentions, and other prayer requests can be handled through The Parish House. A priest is usually on call for personal emergencies and crisis intervention. . This Edifice is definitely one of God's Divine Dwelling Places. It is a wonderful space for quiet and peaceful prayer. One should definitely make Saint Patrick's Cathedral a destination location when visiting New York City, and just sit for those few moments to rest, reflect and meditate. Since, humanity and people's of all faiths are welcome to come and participate, as the Spirit of God moves you. . All of God's Divine Dwelling Places receive a Seven Star ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ rating. Because, the Maker, Energy Source and Entity of the Universe Eternal gives us life and breath. .

    Beautiful Catholic Church in the middle of Manhattan in New York City. I was here about 5 years ago and at that time it was under major construction for upgrading and re-vitalizing so it was covered with metal frames and construction materials but this time, it was standing beautifully and gave me a beautiful experience. Church is located on 5th Ave where you should expect a lot of traffic but I believe they monitor and limit the number of people to go inside so you should be okay once you are in. They do have metal detector / screening so expect that (Yes God doesnโ€™t want you to bring arms here haha) You are more than welcome to look around the church and at the end of the church, there is a quiet room for public to pray and they do have crypt for final resting place for all of the archbishops who served in New York. (But I think Crypt is not open for public) If you go there on the right time, you get to hear choir practicing or organist practicing pipe organ which I was very lucky this time and got to hear their beautiful hymn. For me this was the first place to visit before I started my New York trip and recommend to a lot of people out there :)
