A key location to visit in the heart of downtown with very human and touching tributes to people and the role the church played after 911. St Paul's was a comforting presence in 2001 and continues to be a sanctuary and symbol of the healing that goes on every day for many, many people.

If you visit the 9/11 Memorial be sure to stop by St. Paul's Chapel.St. Paul's served as a comfort station for 9/11 rescue works and now serves as a memorial to those who perished and the volunteers who responded to the crisis.

Besides being a beautiful chapel with a rich history, including a seat where George Washington sat during his time in New York, its significance during 9/11 is most evident. This chapel holds a very moving tribute to those who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks. The chapel did not get damaged during the attacks even though its proximity to... More

This three hundred year old Episcopal Church is only two blocks from the crash site of 9-11. Along the sides and back of it are tomb stones from back to the 1700 amazing enough during the crash a giant tree fell on the church protecting it from any damage. You are allowed to go inside the church now. During the... More

Dont miss even a quick trip to this Church. Its history from 2001 is evident within and its easy now to imagine what it must have been like then, so close to the mayhem. Well worth finding this.

This chapel was not damaged in any way by the down fall of the Twin Towers in yet, it was so close to the towers. Apparently there was not even a cracked window caused by the downing and shrapnel of the towers. Divine Intervention???? It is an architectural delight. It has definitely stood the test of time, as it was... More

Well, we stumbled upon this chapel on our trip to NYC. We had walked to the 9/11 memorial and I like visiting churches so just decided to 'pop in' with my husband. We are so glad that we did. It is the chapel that supported and still supports victims and families linked to the awful 9/11 tragedy. It has some... More
