Trinity Church, New York City

A pillar of the community in lower Manhattan, Trinity Church has played an integral part in New York history from the Revolutionary War to present day. In 1698 Capt. William Kidd gave the runner and tackle from his ship to the builders for hoisting during construction.The church was rebuilt twice before the final reconstruction was completed in 1846. Admire the bronze doors and 23 bells, which reflect the rich patronage the church has received throughout the years. See the burial place of Alexander Hamilton and other famed New Yorkers in the cemetery. Near the burial grounds, you can also visit the tree sculpture commemorating those lost on 9/11. The church is still active with services and a full music program.

  • This church draws much attention for its architecture and a cemetery that surrounds it, is a beautiful, not very large Gothic church, sober and interesting in the middle of the financial district, is a must-see to meditate a little, or at least to appreciate the beauty of its architecture and its enormous harpsichord.

  • I can't believe this building rose sandstone, 26-metre steeple chapel, was built in 1846 years!!! It was said to be a welcome light tower at the port of Newport, and it is more interesting that the 31 church is one of the largest landowners in the city of Newport, and is very visible at the intersection of Broadway and Seoul Street in the city of Newark. The gate of the church was made of bronze cast and carved with many Bible stories, and as soon as he stepped into the church, he felt its atmosphere. High ceilings, beautiful painted windows, when the sun shines through the glass, the 絢 of light shone as if it had narrowed the distance between man and God, bringing calm, and the Gothic Revival-style architecture also fully attracted my attention. Remember to keep quiet and dress properly, and people are actually living here/praying and respecting others is the basic gift.

  • We have previously visited Trinity Church, but this visit it was closed for Organ refurbishment, we were not that disappointed although there were other people that were.  more »

  • Nice, peaceful church with some great architecture. It's surrounded by modern day buildings, which makes it really stand out. Worth visiting!
  • Another church sits around modern buildings! This style is totally different with St. Patrick's. It's worth a visit.
  • Beautiful church inside and out, a historical landmark in the financial district opposite to the Wall Street...on-going mass on weekday during lunch hours but still allowing tourists to go in. It is a warm, spiritual and welcoming church to me!
  • Not only is this place extremely beautiful but it also does beautiful things for people in need. 365 days a year they offer a free meal to anyone in need. There always willing to help those who are less fortunate. God bless them!
  • Reflective, quiet in the middle of the city. Elevated cemetery with One World Trade Center in background. Happen to see Alexander Hamilton grave, walking along the lower level side street toward Broadway.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
