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.

  • The location is surprising at the leastn surrounded by wall street the historic churches immediately stands out and draws you in. Very interesting history and Alexander Hamilton is buried here.  more »
  • On Broadway, at the door of Wall Street is the third Trinity Church (Anglican and Episcopalian), Gothic style, built from 1839 to 1846. The first was destroyed by the great fire of New York, in 1776; the second was built in 1778. This collapsed after the severe winter de1838-1839. The current Trinity Church cemetery. important historical characters are buried, as Alexander Hamilton and William Bradford.

  • Like all the churches in the Big Apple of 6/700 I find them fascinating and worth a visit with graveyards.

  • I love this place. Beautiful Episcopal Church with incredible history and some seriously notable permanent residents. Hamilton and Schuyler are probably the current most popular draw, but a number of other notables including loads of revolutionary war, continental Congress and declaration signing. It's been rebuilt a couple times and, in addition to early US history had been central in events of the recent past like 9/11 and Occupy. Definitely worth a visit!
  • The Trinity Church is quiet and empty early in the morning as the day progresses it becomes busier with visitors and tourists. This place is undergoing renovations and may be a little dusty. However, it is so beautiful and the architectural details are breath taking. They offer FREE guided tours, this is a great opportunity to explore this iconic place.
  • An amazing church, an antique wonder in downtown NYC! Famous people are buried here, and inside the church you can see amazing works of art, stained glass and antique murals! It's very humbling to be in the church. They have done a really nice job keeping the building in perfect shape while allowing visitors to come through. We loved it!
  • A great historic church in lower Manhattan. This church plays a great historical significance in New York history. The cemetery is an interesting visit as well. A must see if in the area. Open to the public.
  • An awe inspiring sight, storied and modest amongst the modern backdrop of the financial district. Sometimes I like to imagine what Hamilton would say, if he crawled out of his grave and took a look around. This church is the only thing he'd recognize!
