Trinity church is so magnificent. It is definitely a must-see. The design and architecture are so beautiful. It is also really neat to walk through the cemetery.

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.

We stopped here while in the financial district to see Alexander Hamiltons grave. It was amazing how quiet and peaceful it was even though you were in the big city. The church was very pretty I did and you can walk the grounds and see a lot of history within the cemetery.

You all know what Trinity stands for. But did you know that this is actually the third church built in this place? The first church, formed by royal charter in 1697, was granted a large chunk of land in downtown Manhattan by Queen Anne some years later. This was known as the Queen's Farm. In the Eighteenth Century several chapels... More

I've seen nicer churches around NYC and wasn't able to fully enjoy it since there was a service in progress, but was able to visit the burial grounds and was amazed by the dates of some of the tombstones!

Surrounded by skyscrapers, this church is across from Wall Street and close to the 9/11 memorial. There is a peaceful graveyard and the interior of the church is very quiet too. Beautiful detailing on the entrance doors. The quietness is a contrast to the crowds at the 9/11 memorial. Well worth a short visit.

Used to be when you walked around Wall Street, like in the 1970's, one could find a good Jewish deli, even Delmonico's looked brighter, now it looks so dark. And the Trinity Church, well with all the construction and police everywhere, who can enjoy it? Unless you are a banker etc, your time and money would be better spent going... More
