This is a great,if not sad place you should visit. As the queue for the memorial gardens at Freedom tower are lengthy, and the tower isn't quite finished, this is a place you can stop and remember the terrible tragedy that was the Twin towers. We should never forget this, and it was here the rescue teams took shelter and... More

Had no plans to see this church at all [we were trying to get to Trinity Church] and decided to see this one since we were right there when we got off the subway. I am SO GLAD that we did not pass this up. WHAT an amazing and moving experience. This was almost more moving than the 9-11 memorial... More

Another must visit, pack your tissues. The little church located just a stones throw away from where the Twin Towers once stood. All the other buildings in the same vicinity got damaged, but not this church, it appeared to be standing strong & proud. It was so moving reading the personal msgs, and looking at the photo's and personal belongings... More

I walked by this beautiful little Chapel that has been around since the founding of the United States. Untouched by 911. There is an old graveyard adjacent to this place that gives it an historic atmosphere.

This place is unbelievable. Can't believe how it stayed intact on 9/11. It has obviously provided a haven of comfort for so many since then, it truly deserves a visit. My husband took one of his police badges to lay at the memorial within the chapel, along with the many others. A very moving experience. The bell just outside the... More

One of the few stand out, older buildings remaining in the city and in beautiful condition. Worth a gander especially as a build up to the more popular 9/11 sites.

How amazing is it that after 9/11 this little chapel is still standing. It is amazing walking through this chapel and seeing many things from 9/11. There are photos, memorials and clothes of some of the fireman. What a lovely place to visit.

We happened upon this after seeing the 9/11 memorial and I am so glad that we did! It was very moving and showed that people can rise to the occasion and help. It really changed NYC forever. I find this experience has made everyone much kinder and more empathetic than in days past. Amazing tribute to the human spirit and... More

This lovely little chapel survived 9/11 without any damage and became the focal point for volunteers providing food, shelter, support and so much more. This is such a moving chapel and shows humanity at its best at such a tragic and horrific time. Very peaceful, touching and moving, not to be missed.

This chapel close to Ground Zero y interesting in the outside with the tombs and the architecture. But inside the story is about remembrance of S11. Sad but interesting place.
