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.

  • A great historic landmark not to miss while on a walking tour of the financial district in New York. We visited here on a cool morning and it wasn't crowded. The architecture of this beautiful building catches our eyes from far away. Grand from outside and grand from inside. It's really decorated and maintained very well. Such a peaceful place to be at amongst the hustle and bustle of the busy city of New York. We were here for about half an hour but someone can spend more time based on how much leisure they have. Would like to visit again and spend some more time there.
  • The main cathedral was undergoing renovations while we were there, so only the chapel was open. The financial district is a relatively easy walk. It's not as big as midtown or uptown, and I think I liked it best of all.
  • A New York City sanctuary! This is sacred ground. It is still under careful renovations but go access what you may. Trinity Church in downtown Manhattan is an absolute must see, once the renovations are finished. It is rich in architectural history. This is historic New York at its best. The grave sites here go back to the 1700s, which in itself is amazing. Located on Broadway right near Wall Street, behind Liberty Park, this church somehow was saved from the tragedy of 911 and it was right next to it. It was as if God would not let anything happen to the church and the people buried there. I've been to this church several times and the inside of it is absolutely beautiful. It is a small cathedral that basically explains how important religion was at that time in NYC. I've even had the chance to light a candle there. It is very peaceful and tranquil and a reminder to all that visit, that regardless of the noise of the buildings around it, and the tragedy that once loomed, there is still a sanctuary that was untouched during the 911 mishap. Make sure you visit this Church, sometime soon. Cherish it!!! Very peaceful place.
  • The church is a very underrated location in New York City. Has some fascinating history behind it as well. Right now there is a bit of construction going on so a part of the church is unavailable. The wait to go in the church was a bit long at the time I visited, but it varies. Highly recommend stopping by on your trip through the city.
  • Absolutely beautiful architecture! I love this historic landmark that is both beautiful outside as well as inside. If you near this place you should visit! I would recommend when you visit make sure you have plenty of time to really enjoy this glorious place.
