It was the little cemetery that first caught our attention in the middle of Broadway St. in NYC. My husband looked around and realized it was St. Paul's Chapel. We went in and it was full of interesting information regarding 911 and history of NYC. We meandered around it was a neat experience and it was free!

If you visit 9/11 memorial preview site, include this chapel. Though NYC sounds busy, cheerful & live, this area soften our minds for its history. May God's peace be with the victims~

In the general area of the new Freedom Tower and a must if you are checking the sad events of 9-11. It is inspiring to learn of the work that went one here during the crisis. Many heroes well documented. An important tribute to first responders.

You have to visit this little church which played a big role in the 9/11 tragedy and beyond. It's free to enter and has played an incredible part in American history

It would be difficult to visit this church without being moved by the small exhibition of 9/11 memorabilia inside. Incredible to think that this building was left untouched when so many other buildings nearby were destroyed.

The last time I visited this church before last month was 14 years ago. The signs were still up on the fence looking for missing people and makeshift memorials to those lost in 9/11 WTC. Now, pieces of the memorabilia have been saved and are on display. Pews, damaged by the heavy firemen's coats and boots, are also on display.... More

We stopped in to see this church after walking around the 9/11 Memorial Pools and grounds. It is truly unbelievable that this small church, so close to the two towers, sustained no damage, not even a broken window - quite possibly a miracle. It's just a small church but was such a huge part of the events that occurred on... More

Not very religious but it was a good experience to visit here especially on palm Sunday. It was grand, i wouldn't say it was a must see but if you are passing by which you probably will be. Have a look. Its worth it.

A nice visual stop along the way. History can be felt in the walls of the church. It is peaceful and a change from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area.

This chapel which is less than 100 yards from Ground Zero did not even experience a broken window during the devastation. It was used as a resting and meeting place by emergency crews assisting at the disaster and they have accumulated some very touching exhibits in the church.
