even that it is located in Manhattan, where there are many skyscrapers, the church looks outstanding and very specific. Very old and can be fun to enter it and pray after you spend bunch of money on the shopping in the shops nearby:)

This beautiful church is well worth a visit when you are near Wall Street. It is a fabulous place to come and escape the noise of the city. It has some very old burial grounds in its surroundings and is very special as people took shelter in here during the 9/11 incident. It is free to visit however donations are... More

We go here every time we are in NYC. Not much changes but we are still drawn here just because of what this place represented during the 911 tragedy. They have a short 5 minute prayer service every day at 12:30 that is open to the pyblic.

I like to visit here and image the after church gossip. This is a great free place to enjoy NYC. Alexander Hamilton and others are buried on this site. Great location between ground zero and statute of liberty when walking.

I would rank this beautiful church up there with St. Patrick's Cathedral. Actually, much more colorful with beautiful stained glass decor. Directly located across from Wall Street and close to Ground Zero, is a worthwhile stop.

We didn't go inside due to the very long line, but the architecture from the outside alone made it worth seeing. The grave markers are amazing. One side was under construction but still worth the trip.

The church is gorgeous. The graveyard historic and peaceful, a break from all the skyscrapers and hubbub of Wall Street. The grave of Alexander Hamilton is here.
