I like to visit here and image the after church gossip. This is a great free place to enjoy NYC. Alexander Hamilton and others are buried on this site. Great location between ground zero and statute of liberty when walking.

I would rank this beautiful church up there with St. Patrick's Cathedral. Actually, much more colorful with beautiful stained glass decor. Directly located across from Wall Street and close to Ground Zero, is a worthwhile stop.

We didn't go inside due to the very long line, but the architecture from the outside alone made it worth seeing. The grave markers are amazing. One side was under construction but still worth the trip.

The church is gorgeous. The graveyard historic and peaceful, a break from all the skyscrapers and hubbub of Wall Street. The grave of Alexander Hamilton is here.

Gorgeous church that sticks out among its buttoned up corporate neighbors. Surrounded by historic cemetery that is home to Alexander Hamilton. Breathtaking stained glass in the interior. Stop by if you're visiting the Wall Street area.

It was a nice surprise to see this great church at the top of Wall Street. Went inside and was surprised with the beauty. I would say stop in. Well worth it on your visited to Wall Street. Cemetery was very interesting to see in the middle of the city.

One of the best prettiest cemeteries in the city. It is a great place to take a stroll in the Spring-Fall (especially the latter). It's also free. For tourists a visit to the WTC, Trinity Church, and then Fraunces Tavern would be great.

beautiful church from both the outside and inside. Great for photos because the craft and detail that went into this building is amazing. Nice to go inside and escape the busy city life and have a peaceful holey moment.
