You can not say brilliant when talking about a church that came to mean so much to so many after 9/11. We all know the horrors of that day but a quiet walk round the church looking at the thousands of messages and offerings that have been left give you a much more human understanding of events.

This is truly a quiet gem in the middle of a bustling city. Just walking through the cemetery makes you feel a million miles away. I loved this place and would definitely take time to visit again.

A building that is steeped in history from the days that George Washington worshipped there up its roll during the 911 aftermath as a rest centre for the emergency workers. Definitely worth visiting as part of the 911 ground Zero tour.

It was a beautiful church. I for some reason had thought there were 9/11 items there but I didn't see any. The graveyard so close to Wall Street was a little unexpected.

This small Chapel, so filled with history (George Washingtion's family pew is here) is easy to walk past and if you do you will really miss an important and moving part of your visit to New York. A beautiful little Chapel inside it is both incredibly historic and also very important in terms of the city's more recent history. So... More

The history in this chapel is amazing. So much information on the heroes of 9-11. This was a highlight of the trip.

I have been to the chapel so many times with visiting friends and family. If you want to see a bit of what happened during 911, you have to see this chapel before you go into the memorial and museum. I get choked up every time I enter the chapel and see the original pews used by the Firemen when... More

It is a tribute to all the rescue and recovery workers of 9/11. It is a simple chapel but well worth your time.

I finally was able to go there almost 14 years after the events of 9/11. I have been to downtown since then, but was never able to go inside the chapel. I went with my fiance, who lives in NYC, and was working there during that horrific day. Walking in, I immediately was drawn to the memories of that day,... More

St Paul's is a pretty little church that has a rich history. A refuge during 911, the memorial in the Chapel is quite moving. You can easily imagine that day and the difficulties the first responders went through. Children throughout the world recognizing heroes.
