This small chapel is worth a look whilst in the area, known because it survived 9/11 intact. It has memorabilia of this event for those interested. A peaceful place in an otherwise busy place, take time to stop and contemplate.

Very small but beautiful church that survived 9-11. Close to the 9-11 Memorial. No charge to walk in. Dates back to the 1700's.

There are some seats to relax and take a break in the graveyard which is covered in grass and with shady trees. Inside the church there are moving stories & tributes from 9/11 as St Pauls was used by workers as a place of rest & comfort. A very moving tribute to them , church workers & volunteers. In some...

A very moving tribute to 911 rescuers. An amazing story- not one window or brick was damaged in the Sept 11 devastation so it became the refuge and recuperation center for these amazing people. Not to be missed

A very old church and grounds in the middle of financial district. It is beautiful and the graveyard has headstones from the 1700's. It is that old and a stunning snapshot in time, framed by the bustle of the towers nearby. Is worth putting on your places to see, if in the area.

Just down the street from the World Trade Center, this church served as a haven for those escaping the destruction and horror of that fateful day. Open to the public and free of charge, you will want to visit this church when services are not in session so as to not disturb churchgoers. You will find the church quiet, with... More

A visit to St. Paul's Chapel gave me a glimpse of architecture and history. I liked the Chapel's simple elegant hall with pale colors, flat ceiling and cut glass chandeliers. On the side of the Chapel's exterior is a curved oak statue of Saint Paul. It is a must visit when in New York because St. Paul's Chapel is a... More

It's a so beautiful church in the middle of all those huge buildings. I'm happy to see that a church can survive that long, where the ground price may be the highest in the world. The church from outside with that dark stone looks great. And when you enter it the sadness the remembers of that 9/11 moment comes to... More

But still go inside. It's also a very important part of the 9/11 Memorial and you can have a quiet moment to reflect.

This is one of the oldest buildings in Manhattan, built before the Revolution. It is elegant, beautiful, historic, and open and friendly to the public. It is just a block or so from the World Trade Center and took care of cops, firemen, rescuers, workers during the horrors of 9/11. George Washington had a pew here. There are also many... More

What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.
