In 2006 I sat in the chapel and cried. It was so sad and wonderful. Chapel built in 1766 and the firefighters stories and badges are there for all to see. Light a candle for a love one. Close to the 911 fountains. A must see experience. You can make a donation. The Chapel is small and lots of trees... More

A wonderfully gothic building situated amongst the hussle & bussle of NY. Beautifully ornate architecture, and in complete contrast to the high rise buildings

This small church, once attended by President Washington was the place where 911 volunteers gathered to aid and help those in need and those who rescued during the tragic events. It is a very emotionally charged place but very soothing also.

The interior of the church is not gothic style, obviously but nonetheless its a place to see. Many former presidents use to come here and I believe prominent people in the US history are burried around the church Also, this church was damaged a little during the unfortunate 9/11 attacks but a tree that I believe still stands was not...

This was a beautiful visit - my friend was shopping in Century 21 and as I am not really a shopper was more than happy to have the opportunity to explore this little gem. Very evocative and a fitting tribute to all those who gave their time to help those trying to clear the disaster area left after the World... More

Intimacy of the chapel, with a very special ambiance. Lovely friendly staff, who were attentive but not intrusive. Wonderful displays of work/photos/memorabilia which sensitively told of the events surrounding 9/11 and since. A must to see when visiting new York

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.
