Its a kind of gothic Church close to NYSE (wall street). Inside there is a respectful behavior, It is a nice visit to pray or just admire the details inside and outside.

Located right next to Wall Street, it is nice to pop in here and escape the chaos for a while. Don't go out your way for it, but if in Lower Manhattan then definitely go in.

even that it is located in Manhattan, where there are many skyscrapers, the church looks outstanding and very specific. Very old and can be fun to enter it and pray after you spend bunch of money on the shopping in the shops nearby:)

This beautiful church is well worth a visit when you are near Wall Street. It is a fabulous place to come and escape the noise of the city. It has some very old burial grounds in its surroundings and is very special as people took shelter in here during the 9/11 incident. It is free to visit however donations are... More

We go here every time we are in NYC. Not much changes but we are still drawn here just because of what this place represented during the 911 tragedy. They have a short 5 minute prayer service every day at 12:30 that is open to the pyblic.

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.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
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. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
