St. Patrick's Old Cathedral, New York City

The Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral is located at the corner of Prince Street and Mott Street in the SoHo / Little Italy neighborhood of Manhattan. The corner stone of St Patrick's Old Cathedral, the city's first Cathedral Church, was laid on June 8,1809. It was dedicated on May 14, 1815, and on that day the New York Gazette described the cathedral as "a grand and beautiful church, which may

justly be considered one of the greatest ornaments of our city."

The Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral was the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York until the current Saint Patrick's Cathedral located on 5th Avenue and 50th Street opened in 1879. St. Patrick's Old Cathedral became a parish church on May 25,1879. Both cathedral churches share the same Board of Trustees, overseen by Archbishop Timothy Dolan.

In 1966, St. Patrick's Old Cathedral was one of the first sites to be named a New York City landmark by the New York City Landmarks Commission.

  • What a great tour! I had no idea that there was any thing like this in NYC! Our guide, Leo was awesome! Very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
  • This tour was fantastic. A very well informed guide takes you through these catacombs by candlelight and you get to see how the wealthy New Yorkers were laid to rest. Rows of tombs and vaults which were bought from the church. The guide provided very interesting stories and anecdotes about the current residents. There was insight into families and societal culture. Recommend this tour highly.
