The Pontifical Shrine of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel should be at the top of list for Catholics visiting New York. There have been several documented miracles that have been performed by the Blessed Mother at this Shrine. The image located here was proclaimed miraculous by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII and crowned during the pontificate of Pope St. Pius X on July 10th, 1904. It is one of the 3 most holy sites in the Americas as coronated by Pontifical Authority. The two others are Our Lady of Perpetual Help in New Orleans, and the Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico. OLMC was built by the neighborhood's Italian immigrant parishioners (who upon completing the cathedral in the style of an Italian mountain village basilica, were only permitted to worship in their native language down in its basement). The church has been the center of a religious feast each July for the past 130 years.  In one particular occasion, there were 500,000 people attending the feast.  Today, services are offered in English, Spanish, French, Italian, Polish and Latin.—Trip Advisor
