The chapel is closed for restoration until work is completed in the fall. The churchyard will remain open. St. Paul's Chapel is part of Trinity Wall Street, an Episcopal parish that has been a part of New York City since 1697. The parish is deeply rooted in the city’s and the nation’s history. Established during the British occupation of New York and recognized by royal charter, Trinity was the first Anglican Church (which followed the services of the Church of England and included the King or Queen in its prayers) in Manhattan. St. Paul's Chapel was founded in 1766 as a chapel-of-ease at Broadway and Fulton Street. George Washington prayed there after his inauguration as President in 1789. Located just across the street from the World Trade Center, St. Paul’s played an important role in hosting recovery workers after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

we managed to squeeze in - lovely space renovations looked appropriate and in keeping - reminded me of church opposite Royal Society of Arts - London - not over decorated - very tranquil and contemplative

Small 9/11 memorial inside. Church survived the attack and was used to feed and care for "first responders" on and after that fateful day. Worth a quick look as it's right beside the 9/11 memorial site

We started our tour here and heard about how the chapel sustained the attacks on the twin towers. Walked through the grounds and noted the gravestones from many years back.

We were able to visit inside the church during a service and then visit the grounds, which consist primarily of a graveyard. The graveyard was actually a plus for the visit. Read some of the tombstones and be amazed at how old they are -...More

Many tourists visit this small chapel for the simple reason because George Washington used to worship here after his inauguration in 1789 and this chapel became very famous.

We stopped in on a whim. There was a group of musicians practicing in the sanctuary. The building has been restored and there are alot of brochures, plaques and memorabila to read.

I had been here on a previous visit so was a little disappointed that so much memorabilia from 9\11 had been removed.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.

Hi. No ticket necessary. It is free. It is great to take a look at one of the oldest churches in New York. You just have to make sure to go during visiting hours. There is also a great graveyard where people from over... More
