We had the chance to visit this iconic Chapel last weekend and once again, very emotional and taking moment. This place has survived the 9/11 disaster and there's still images and memorials onside that pay tribute on what happen there 14 years ago. A must see while in NY.

Very unassuming from the outside, St. Paul's Chapel holds a wealth of history within its doors. From its construction during the Revolutionary period, this little church has played host to presidents, governors, and even heroes of 9/11. With so much history surrounding it, St. Paul's Chapel serves as a beacon for renewal and hope within the city's center. If visiting... More

Amazing grave sites, so old and so much history. You will find a 9/11 memorial bell here as well. Considering it is within steps of the 9/11 memorial-it's amazing to think that it stood while the WTC buildings collapsed. Used as a rescue station and a space to post and look for loved ones during the 9/11 tragedy as well.... More

Saint Paul's Chapel is now more of a museum than a house of worship (especially since the removal of the pews), but the service at 9:15 on Sunday mornings is worth attending. It is lively, family friendly, welcoming, and low key. Immediately after the service there was a special visit to the cemetery to ring the "Bell of Hope" to... More

The history of this building connected with George Washington is inspiring. The cemetery is wonderful. The history of the building and connection to 9-11 is a beautiful story. Must see

This church survived 9/11 even though it was so close and then became a safe haven for the rescue works and everyone taking care of them. It also has other history. Really an amazing story.

There's nothing special architecture-wise. It's a plain ordinary building from the inside and outside. It's a significant building because it's the oldest public building in continuous use in NYC and survived many fires and 9/11 being only a few hundred feet from the World Trade Center. it was also the place of refuge and rest for the rescue workers and...

The chapel is right across the street from the Twin Towers disaster. It is a small church which now contains some displays of 9/11 items, and several stations where 9/11 related items can be purchased. It was used as a haven for rescue personnel and later as storage and rest area for those working on the clean up efforts. There... More

St. Paul's Chapel is one of the most historic churches in Manhattan and you can still see where George Washington prayed. This is the church that is most closely associated with 9/11, being just a stone's throw from the old World Trade Center towers, and it still has 9/11-related exhibitions on display; it's really worth a half hour of your...

What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting.
