Normally, I would take pictures as soon as I come in. This time, I was affected and I felt sadness all of a sudden. I walked around and read a lot but I could not take any pictures. It was just so sad. There was construction and they were making preparations for Easter Sunday the next day.

This chapel, in the shadow of the new World Trade Center Building No. 1, was once in the shadow of the Twin Towers. After the horror of 9/11, the Chapel became a staging ground for recovery and rebuilding efforts--and a place for people like myself to reflect and find serenity amid the profound sadness. It remains a quiet, deeply moving... More

A part of New York history. It was under construction while we were there and there was a service going on. Still beautiful interior. Lovely.

This Episcopal chapel is historical for many reasons, but the thing that moved me was the displays about the church's role in ministering to rescue workers and volunteers in the days, weeks, and months after 9/11. Take time to absorb all of the information presented; enjoy just sitting in the beautiful place and meditating. You can also walk in the... More

It was the most moving and humbling experience of whole day for me, to see all the cards of remembrance, from all the relatives of victims, along with tributes from all over the world. Very Sad!

One of the most spectacular churches in the US it is built in the style of the great catholic churches of Europe with wonderful architecture and great stained glass windows. Right now EVERYTHING is under construction so it is hard to appreciate the majesty of the place.

This small church is the heart and soul of ground zero for me. I feel connected to the real people who were there and find peace in the quiet within. It was being renovated this last visit, but was still open. I'm glad to see it getting some love. It is truly a beautiful place.

This as the first stop of our visit to the 9/11 sites we found outabout it from a tour guide on Go NYtours bus. It is a good half hour spent learning not only about what happened during 9/11 but this little church has other historical events and artifacts

Neighborhood Profile
TriBeCa
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.
