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.

We were lucky enough to see the Dean Close School chapel choir (Cheltenham, England) sing at St Paul's Chapel. An intimate venue and place of huge significance during 9/11, brought to life by this magical performance during our visit. Other guest choirs sing there from time to time so try and coordinate your visit with one of these if possible.

This one was near ground zero and it was amazing the building survived. The church also had some of the history of 911 and interactive exhibit on site.

this church has seen many disasters but has stood strong.The rescue workers of 9/11 used to take their breaks by sleeping in this tiny Chapel. I had tears in my eyes while seeing souvenirs kept here.

A visit to St. Paul's Chapel was included in our tour of New York. This simple church near the site of the World Trade Center was a place of refuge and peace for those working tirelessly amid the tragic ruins. The messages and displays brought me to tears and I could feel the love and caring they found there. Over... More
