Check the website to find out about their free concerts at Trinity Church. I attended one of the Thursday classical concerts which last about an hour. Superb music and the composer of one of the pieces was in the audience. Free but you can make a donation in appreciation.

The grounds of this church were more interesting that what was inside, except for the organ which I always love to see. Stop in for a quick visit, but only if you're in the area.

Literally at the end of Wall Street, you will find this church. Large and foreboding, it stands firm and weathered. Not far from St. Paul's Church, I found this church much more typical of a Christian church, with stunning art and glass. It is also free. However, you will want to visit during time that services are not taking place... More

The Trinity Church is certainly a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Wall St, providing a calm and peaceful area to visit when feeling overwhelmed. With a real Gotham feel to it it certainly adds to the Financial District.

It is placed in front of Wall Street. What a great calm place at the bustling city! It was one of my most beautiful places in New York City. Beatiful church with gorgeous interior.

Trinity Church is synonymous with 9/11 and still has a eerie feeling upon entering, at least for me it did. It is beautiful inside and well worth popping in. I adore stained glass windows so I always check them out, and when I feel so moved, I also light candles in many churches I visit. No visit to Ground Zero/Wall... More

We spent a lot of time walking around the church after we saw the interior of this beautiful Gothic building.. The cemetery had interesting tombstones that dated back to the 1600's. During our visit, they had a photo shoot which I thought was strange. That did not deter us from walking around some more. Even after the rain, there were... More

Beautifully decorated. Cemetery is always fun. A lot of history with interesting plaques. Good for all ages and family-oriented.

Before September 11, 2001, I had never taken time out from a busy schedule to explore this historic American church. Shortly after 9/11 I visited the site while the destruction was still raw and recovery had not yet started. Within days I had heard that although abutting next to the towering buildings, even after an earthquake was recorded when the... More

If you are in the area I would recommend stopping in. There is a lot of history if you have time to look around. The cemetery next to the church is quiet and has graves from the 1700's.
