Quaint little chapel across the street from the original World Trade Center complex. Graveyard that dates back to the revolutionary war, with many stones still intact and legible. George Washington actually prayed here. While all the other buildings surrounding the twin towers took significant damage,...More

It's obviously not as big as St. Patrick's Cathedral, nor as beautiful. But, it has its charm. The fact that it seems like it has been involved in important moments of our history, it's amazing.

Certainly this place does have a history and the storyboards around the walls tell the tale very well. Curiously there is a security scanner as you enter. Anyhow, it was damaged very little during the 9/11 atrocity and so it is in the main as...More
