Lots of history here. Many of the first casualties of the WTC bombing were treated at this very old historic church. Memorials are still set up there. Great old cemetery out side and George Washington worshipped regularly there. We loved being there and would recommend a trip to the church, especially if you are going to the WTC memorial.

Chance to read what happened at the Chapel after 9/11. You can also purchase commemorative gifts and the money raised goes to support the families of the deceased fireman and police officers that gave their lives on the day trying to rescue people from the Towers. A very emotional place to go, don't miss it.

A Mica-Schist with brownst quoins with boxy and domestic details, among the oldest public buildings in Manhattan that always bring history with own man- St Paul.

There is so much worth history seeing at St. Paul's Chapel, from George Washington's special pew to recent history when it was used for a refuge to the First Responders after the 9/11 attack. The Chapel is Manhattan's only surviving per-Revolutionary Church from 1766. The edifice, itself, is worth seeing, but the greatest emotional impact is all of the artifacts... More

You can see where George Washington sat in his pew, and where 911 responders lay down in pews to rest and sleep. Charming and moving at the same time.

That's what the sign in front of St. Paul's tells you. Then, it continues: "Witness to the great fire of 1776 - Host to George Washington on Inauguration Day - Survivor of the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001". These facts are what make the place so moving: a poignant reminder of the lives lost on 9/11 and a testimony... More

I had heard about this church and it's remarkable survival on that fateful day. I am not a religious person but had to at myself the question as to why and how this church survived any type of damage.

Very moving poignant chapel that supported emergency workers on 9/11. Events of 9/11 are told via notice boards around the chapel. The love and support that radiated from the people of New York through this chapel was incredible and amazing that it survived the terrorist attack. Very glad that I visited even though it was very humbling.
