A great church with an inspiring history. Elegant and beautiful and welcoming to all. When near Wall Street, stop in a visit one of New York's prettiest churches.
Go inside to feel the mysterious wonder of this structure built in the 1600's. Walking around is a great experience. We enjoy people watching as there are much tourists as well as locals. There are also activities and something very exciting to do. Check out the forum for the latest.

As we walked from the 9/11 memorial we came across the Trinity Church. A very pleasant surprise. In it was the burial site for Alexander Hamilton and Robert Fulton. Of course for my son, it is the place where the movie National Treasure happens. We walked around for about 30 minuted enjoying and reading the tombstones. We did not go... More
It's nicer from outside. In my opinion the interiors are not so impressive. I enjoyed walking in the churchyard/ cemetery, it's very peaceful and beautiful. And the mix of architectures, skyscrapers and the church, is very interesting.
