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

The cemetery was hauntingly beautiful and the church itself was lovely and peaceful. Added bonus, they had one of the cleanest public restrooms I found in the city.

This picturesque church stands out amongst the skyscrapers of the financial district. Admission to both the church and churchyard is free. The interior is lovely with stained glass windows and a detailed arched roof. When visiting, remember that this is a functional church and there are often people there praying - a quiet atmosphere is maintained to respect this. The... More

The other day we went even further to the south from the Tribeca, passing the site, where back in 2005, in year when we'had been in New York, was the foundation for the new World Trade Center. This way we reached to the gorgeous anglican Trinity Church in the middle of the imposant Wall Street. In fact, it is located... More

beautiful in its own right, so if you have extra time in your itinerary check this out. anyway you wont be able to resist when you see many people walking in and you follow out of curiosity. there's a graveyard on the way out on the side. read the tombstones to appreciate that you are still living.
