Trinity Church, New York City

(4.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful church in the busy streets of NYC. Very peaceful and the surrounding property feels historic!
  • Worthy spending a quarter or more in and if there's a service, stay longer. architecture is so great and its location makes it unique.
  • Pipl find jesus hier
  • Beauriful church and its a nice place to explore and find Alexander Hamiltons grave.
  • We were walking by and saw this huge bronze sculpture in the garden of the church, which is in the image of a massive tree uprooted during 9/11 fallout from the Towers. I had to go inside and sit for a moment of reflection on how this church is still standing despite being so close to ground zero. It is about a block from the NY Stock Exchange, and it evokes a quiet peace inside. Step inside if you have the time, well worth it.
