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.

The 9/11 memorial was an underwhelming place of souvenir stalls and very loud waterfalls with the visitor centre far to expensive to visit. Popped into this church to light a candle and pray and discovered a beautiful place of multi-faith reverence and history with a...More

It is so close to the World Trade Centre site yet is was unharmed in 9/11. It served as a place of rest and refuge for recovery workers at the WTC site. It is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan and looks like it...More

Must see for its role in both early and modern history of our nation. Check out the graveyard and its role in 9/11.

This beautiful church was a refuge and managed to sustain the onslaught of that dastardly terrorist attack on the Twin Towers. It's a haven of peace and tranquillity in a very busy Financial district .

Just at the top of the 9/11 memorial area is St Pauls. A lot of the emergency services took shelter or simply used the chapek as a base during the atrocity. It's free and the small memorial section is a must see with no queues!

Very historic and well maintained. Enjoyed the history and even had bathrooms for visitors in the back which was a welcome surprise. Would recommend for all who appreciated history,

This church was attended by many of our Founding Fathers. It has a great history and is a very beautiful building. Well worth the effort.

We stumbled in here by accident after walking back from World Trade Center. It was a charming, historic cite that was perfect for a quick visit.

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.
