Fun History Lesson

Our tour guide Dan is extremely knowledgeable about the ‘old’ St. Patrick’s Cathedral and NYC. We had a fun time learning about the history of Catholicism here - thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend the tour.

Learning the history of conspiracy theories. Each immigrant used these to create fear amongst the new groups. It was easier than dealing with the truth.

10/10 recommend. It's worth the price as you gain knowledge about the past and people of the church. Definitely something different that isn't a museum.
