This is about a block away from 9/11 tribute site. This is a beautiful old church. Don't miss the front doors! There is a cemetery around the church that is very interesting.

The intimate interior and gorgeous stained-glass windows were breathtaking. The graveyard, filled with old tombstones covered in moss were equally beautiful. I visited St. Patrick's Cathedral as well but was not moved by it as I was by this church.

We were there on a Sunday morning and a service was just starting. There were "greeters" welcoming us, when we said we were "just looking" they were still welcoming and shared informational brochures. The interior is so pretty, Trinity is definitely worth a look. I was particularly interested in the churchyard. Inventor Robert Fulton and Alexander Hamilton are buried there.... More

Trinity Church is very pretty inside and out but unless you are particularly interested in churches this will just be another church to get a quick look of on your travels. It is good if you have a bit of time to fill in before your timed ticket to the 9/11 Memorial comes into effect or while visiting Wall Street,

Not sure the real one was used in National Treasure, but it is on the edge of Wall Street District and a fantastic view. It is quiet inside too.

I have to say this is a cool church to visit. I'm not very religious anymore, but I appreciate the architecture and the hard work that goes into these old centers of worship. Be sure to stop by the graveyard next door to see some very old tombstones. It's a very interest look into the past.

Its a very pretty church in the middle of the city, but, its just a church. so if you are not one of those who is interested, this can be avoided. Wouldnt harm to see the calm place for 15 min or so..

Visited this really lovely church before walking down Wall Street. Very worth a look inside, even if it's only for 5 mins en route.
