Landmarks of New YorkConstruction of this first cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of New York was begun in 1809, the year following the creation of the Diocese. The original building, designed by Joseph F. Mangin, was dedicated in 1815, enlarged in 1833-42, and almost totally destroyed by fire in 1866. The rebuilt structure was rededicated two years later. In 1879, when the new cathedral on Fifth Avenue was opened, Old St. Patrick's became a parish church. Here John McClosky in 1875 was invested as the first American Cardinal.
