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.

  • Loved the church, building and grounds are historic and incredibly beautiful. But, this is NOT the church you saw in National Treasure, the movie used the name, but not the actual church building.
  • This beautiful church is often overlooked by visitors, but it's one of the most historical sites in New York City. The architecture and interior detail are amazing. It's a place where you can stop in quickly if you're going to or from somewhere else, or you can get a tour of the building and spend some time there. It is an active church with services, but they welcome visitors whether you're religious or not. You can learn a little about early American history and get some great photos too.
  • Awesome History, and it is great to see a place still preserve history, while keeping it's doors open for all to come worship. awesome.
  • We walked from the Battery park and passed the charging bull. It was a beautiful church in the financial district in NYC. The interior was beautiful. The church was peaceful.
