I was looking for the 9/11 Memorial and the Church as nearby, I did not get in the church and it´s small but as the guy from the bus said, the church was protected from the WTC ashes because of it´s trees on the churchyard.

This church that sat across the street from the twin towers was saved by divine intervention on 9/11. There was no damage to the building that day and it served as a place for the volunteers to go and rest and to get a massage or medical help. it has a great memorial inside the church.

This church gave me such a warm feeling. Left untouched by terrorist attacks and knowing it houses workers during that time really in an exhilarating feeling. I was saddened and brought to tears as I walked through the church browsing through all the memorabilia from that awful time. Loved the make shift altar that was preserved and on display, prayer...

I thought it would be more beautiful on the inside. It is nice to sit down and take in a few things but that's about it.

This is an amazing destination to go to! You revisit the things that happened during the September 11th tragedies that stuck the United States of America with the Twin Tower attacks. This church is where the Firefighters stayed during the attack with the cleaning up and saving people that were hurt. It is a great place to visit and the... More

We met our City Guides tour guide Rob on the porch of the chapel for our guided tour of the 9/11 Memorial. I was unaware of all the historical roles this church has played in the past, the most recent being the place where the fireman rested during the 9/11 tragedy. It is a beautiful chapel and well worth a... More

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.
