Trinity Church, New York City

Create an itinerary including Trinity Church
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 is beautiful! The staff around the grounds were super friendly ( we met Brandon). We enjoyed seeing the final resting places of Alexander Hamilton, Angelica Schuyler and Hercules Mulligan.

  • Only open for visits to churchgoers on Sunday which means you are also not able to walk the grounds immediately surrounding the historic church except for Sundays. Worth visiting any day of the week. The exterior reliefs, stained glass and view of the grounds through the wrought iron fence is worth the effort.
  • We didn't go into the church but just perused the graveyard. It was a really cool experience to see the history and think about the life some people may have lead. Coming from the west we don't have as much history that goes back this far so it was cool to see.
  • A very beautiful and historic church down by Wall Street. The architecture is amazing and very detailed the staff is helpful you just need to wear a mask and have a covid vaccine or negative test to be able to go in. You can also walk around the graveyard and see Alexander Hamilton's grave and Jerry orbach from law & order is buried here too. It's a great place to visit what are your tourist or a New Yorker
  • Beautiful grounds full of history. I was also told this was the church from national treasure so fun little fact. It was one of the stops on the tourist bus that was nice and relaxing.
  • Very interesting church. The history is the history of America. The famous graves around the church are interesting as well. Lots of information to read about. Take your time strolling the church and the grounds and taking it all in.
