I was in the city with some friends for a very short visit, but had hoped to maybe be able to get by here for this.  We made it to Time Square, but just didn't have time to get to St. Patrick's.  Going to need to plan a caching specific trip back up to NYC this year.

I have been to this church on other visits to NYC.  It is under major renovations but I was still able to go in.  There is now a digital guest book which I did sign. 

Thanks for the one and only opencache in NYC.  I am using to help me win a prize in opencaching this month.

Came into the city to pick someone up at the train station. We got here early so we could check out Rockefeller Center and the tree. We also stopped by the church. I signed in and had a nice walk around. Looks like they are doing some major renovations with some major scafolding setup, but they keeping things open pretty well. TFTC!

Nice to get in out of the noise for a moment.  This should look great when they are done. Thanks for the cache.
