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.

Such a lovely chapel and grounds. It's proximity to Ground Zero made it a place for first responders and organizers to congregate and take respite.

Fantastic church that was the centre of a lot of post 9/11 clean up. It has a rich history in NCY and is worth popping in for that reason.

We stumbled across this landmark on the way to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. By all means, if you are in the area, do stop by and see the chapel and the grounds. You won't regret it.
