Overview

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.

When visiting the 9/11 Memorial or Freedom Tower, take about an hour to visit St. Paul's Chapel. It's true, many famous people had visited this chapel prior to 9/11, but what happened (or did not happen) on September 11, has a greater meaning in making...More

Interesting Chapel with a lot of history. It is surprising to see how it survived 9/11. The chapel is still used for masses on Sunday morning; therefore, it is best to visit it in the afternoon.

This was a historical church built in the early 1900s. George Washington used to worship here. Even though this church is located very near to the former World Trade center, it was not damaged at all by the attack.

I loved walking through the grave yard and seeing all the old head stones. The chapel is beautiful and the stories about how the chapel was not damaged is a goose bump all over me experience!!!
