This is a very nice building from outside and the graveyard looks pretty cool in such a busy area. If your visiting WTC it's worth a call as it's so close.

Neat to see when visiting the 9/11 memorial. The place celebrates its historical roles and has some neat displays. The role the church played during the 9/11 tragedy is unreal and should be seen when visiting the area.

To complete the 9/11 Memorial tour, one must visit St. Paul's. The rescue workers used the church to regenerate their weary bodies and get new boots after sifting through the rubble for hours in end. Very historical background to the church as well.

I enjoyed this short visit to this church. I found the stories related to 9/11 the most fascinating. Don't spend your money on a tour, just go.

The chapel is a lovely little piece of history that surprisingly survived the fall of the towers. We actually visited this site when it was still full of the memories of the people that struggled on at the carnage of the towers. It is very interesting in its own right and full of historical information. Well worth a visit when... More

Glad a friend suggested a visit. I would have missed something really special otherwise. Example of what a religious community should be.

Simply amazing. We would have never visited this place except for the reviews on trip advisor. So glad we did. This church is the heart and soul of the 9-11. A place where rescuers sought shelter and solace from their terrible task. A very emotional place filled with history that dates back to the Revolutionary War period. Do not miss... More

If you are looking for a way to show your kids some of the 9/11 experience, you might consider the exhibit at this Chapel. It's moving, yet supportive and not overwhelming. I didn't think my kids were old enough to handle the Memorial Museum so we went here after the 9/11 Memorial. While parts are sad, I felt overall the... More
