Situated at the end of Wall Street, this is the icon of New York. Only small, it is still a good place to see.

Trinity Church is a beautiful church right in the middle of the financial district. It was under construction, but we still enjoyed the visit. Alexander Hamilton is buried here. There is not a cost to enter, though donations are accepted.

I never realized how close the church and Wall Street were to the 9/11 Museum and where the twin towers were. Very easy walk to see those things in the same day. Trinity church is beautiful, despite being covered with scaffold. But I'm sure it will be amazing once it is complete.

Beautiful church to visit. We found it was a place to rest and reflect both inside and in the shady garden. Well worth a visit.

If you are in downtown manhattan, you may as well visit this Church at the end of Wall Street. A very important church in the history of New York and the cemetary features Alexander Hamilton's grave and a monument dedicated to Robert Fulton.

Historic pre-revolutionary cemetary planted with hosta, impatiens, and coleus. Beautiful shade garden is a quiet oasis where workers lunch and church volunteers feed the homeless. Inspiring.

We walked through the park and viewed the headstones and marveled at the church and all of this history encased right there in the middle of the city bustle. If you are in the area, check it out--it was worth the small investment of time.

Our family loves visiting historic churches, and this was a must see on our list. The architecture inside was amazing, the woodwork and moldings were perfectly crafted, and the stained glass windows are something that you would never see in a more modern church. We all stopped to think about all of the parishioners that have crossed through those incredibly... More

Built originally in the 1600's it is so interesting to see and walk through the cemetery and read the head stones. A lot of history is a small space that includes 911.
