Getting to St. Paul's Cathedral


St. Paul's Cathedral is located in the heart of downtown Buffalo on Church St. between Main St. and Pearl St. It's main entrance is on Pearl St. south of Church St. The parish house is also on Pearl St. opposite the cathedral.

St. Paul's is bounded by Church St. to the north, Pearl St. to west, Main St. to the east, and Cathedral Park to the south. Downtown Main St. is a pedestrian mall with the light rail trains running down its middle.

There is some metered parking on Pearl St. For services, parking is also available on Church St. on either side of Pearl St. (The signs along Church St. say otherwise, but the police have been instructed not to ticket cars attending services.) The nearest public parking is under Main Place Mall less than a block north of the cathedral on Pearl St. To get to this parking if you are in front of the cathedral, continue down to Swan St., turn right onto Swan St, then turn right again onto Franklin St. Go north two blocks and turn right on to Eagle St. Follow the signs to the ramp underneath Main Place Mall.

Below are instructions on getting to St. Paul's from a number of different directions.

From Canada by the Peace Bridge.

Once past U. S. customs, veer to the left and proceed to Porter St. Turn left onto Porter St. and take it to Niagara St. Turn right onto Niagara St. and take it to Niagara Square. Proceed half way around Niagara Square to Niagara St. (again). Follow Niagara St. (which will turn into Eagle St.) to Pearl St. and turn right. (You have no choice here since Pearl is one way and Niagara St. ends.) Take Pearl St. to St. Paul's (which is to your left just beyond Church St.)

From the Thruway coming from the East.

Once past the Williamsville toll barrier, follow the signs for Buffalo. Take the first exit (exit 51), route 33 west to Buffalo. Stay on route 33 to downtown to the Oak St. exit (the last exit on the expressway). Continue on Oak St. to North Division St. (just past the bus station on your right). and turn right. N. Division St. becomes Church St. After you cross the light rail line going down Main St., turn left at the next traffic light onto Pearl St. The cathedral will be on your left, the parish house on your right.


From the Thruway coming from the South.

Remain on I-90 once past the Southtown's toll barrier. Take exit 53, the exit labeled downtown Buffalo via Interstate I-190. (There is a $.50 toll in-bound toll just after you enter I-190.) Follow I-190 to downtown Buffalo. Exit at Church St., and continue on Church St. until you get to St. Paul's (on your right).

Going south on Main Street.

Follow Main St. (U. S. route 5) towards downtown Buffalo. Just before downtown, you will be forced to veer right onto Pearl St. Proceed along Pearl St. until you get to St. Paul's.

Going south on Delaware Avenue.

Go south on Delaware Ave. until you reach Niagara Square. Circle the square about five-eighths around from Delaware Ave and turn right onto Niagara St. Continue on Niagara St and Eagle St. to Pearl St., turn right onto Pearl St., and proceed one block to St. Paul's.
