This picturesque church stands out amongst the skyscrapers of the financial district. Admission to both the church and churchyard is free. The interior is lovely with stained glass windows and a detailed arched roof. When visiting, remember that this is a functional church and there are often people there praying - a quiet atmosphere is maintained to respect this. The... More

The other day we went even further to the south from the Tribeca, passing the site, where back in 2005, in year when we'had been in New York, was the foundation for the new World Trade Center. This way we reached to the gorgeous anglican Trinity Church in the middle of the imposant Wall Street. In fact, it is located... More

beautiful in its own right, so if you have extra time in your itinerary check this out. anyway you wont be able to resist when you see many people walking in and you follow out of curiosity. there's a graveyard on the way out on the side. read the tombstones to appreciate that you are still living.

I walked past the Trinity church at Broadway st,new york and went in. Found that it is an Anglican church with high ceilings and beautiful. First time I see the priest who is a woman, a break from the traditonal male domain. Acted with reverence as it is a sacred space

Beautiful church. They have a registry you can sign when you go in & of course you can take pictures of the stained glass & architecture. It was quiet inside (like a church should be) & peaceful just walking in off the busy streets of NYC

This church is very near to the 911 memorial. Go during the day and you can walk inside to see the beautiful church. Please be respectful. It is a good place for a quiet moment. Walk through the church yard and read the graves. There are some interesting stories in this pretty, old graveyard. Go after the 911 memorial if... More

During planning for a recent trip to New York I discovered that I had a relative buried at this church. I planned on visiting and had no idea this place was so beautiful, what a surprise. Alexander Hamilton is buried here. There are several benches placed in the 2 grave yards to allow time to relax. There is also a... More

Just a beautiful and peaceful place to be overall. I'm not Christian but it shows peace and unity for all race and religions.

Nice old church in the middle of the skyscrapers. But even more unusual is the cemetary with many old graves and (business)people having lunch and making calls in the middle of all of that. Odd.
