We had been here before. this little church sat across the street from the World Trade Center, yet it did not have a single window broken when the Towers came down on 9/11. It became the place for the workers to go to get a little rest, some kind words and a massage between their shifts on the rubble. It... More

I really like that this church is in the heart of the financial district, it is so distinctive among the other buildings. The exterior is very impressive and the interior stands out as well. Nice quiet place to reflect upon our Lord.

Walked by Trinity Church on my way to the Brooklyn Bridge and just had to stop and visit for awhile. The stained glass window inside the church is beautiful, as is the entire church itself. The surrounding graveyard is so peaceful you almost forget you're in the middle of the city. Worth a visit if you're around the financial district.

So very quiet and peaceful, even with the doors open - how do they accomplish that right in the heart of NYC financial district? This is a must see - gorgeous stained glass windows, organ pipes in the back (over the entrance), be sure to go back to the little chapel area, and into the courtyard. The gravesites are very...

Situated at the west end of Wall Street and a block away from the 9/11 memorial, Trinity Church is a small but beautiful church and graveyard that is well worth a quick visit. Regardless of your beliefs, its interesting to hear about its involvement with 9/11 and take a moment to reflect, especially after reading about Trinity Root sculpture that... More

Situated at the end of Wall Street, this is the icon of New York. Only small, it is still a good place to see.

Trinity Church is a beautiful church right in the middle of the financial district. It was under construction, but we still enjoyed the visit. Alexander Hamilton is buried here. There is not a cost to enter, though donations are accepted.

I never realized how close the church and Wall Street were to the 9/11 Museum and where the twin towers were. Very easy walk to see those things in the same day. Trinity church is beautiful, despite being covered with scaffold. But I'm sure it will be amazing once it is complete.

Beautiful church to visit. We found it was a place to rest and reflect both inside and in the shady garden. Well worth a visit.
