We enjoyed a brief visit to St. Paul's and were impressed with the buildings ability to survive many changes to lower Manhattan.

We were told by friends not to miss this chapel and we were glad we found it. This was our first time visiting New York and we wanted to see as much as possible and get the real 'feel' of the city. We came here after visiting Ground Zero and were amazed at all the work done by all those... More

The Chapel the first in America, became the resting place for those rescuers of the 9/11 victims. The things they left behind remain as well as a police badge from every police group world wide who sent help. What a place.

The welcome by staff is wonderful, they have that reassuring calm that people of the church often have. The story they tell about the chapel's role in the wake of 9/11 is very humbling. I was there when they recited their daily prayers for peace which was very moving. It no longer has the pews in to make it a... More

We had the chance to go to one of their free midday concerts. It was a Baroque music program played with period instruments and was outstanding. Lasted an hour and included Rossini, Mozart and Hayden. Easy to get to - the subway literally stops at the church at Broadway and Fulton. Definitely worth checking our their website if you are...

I was returning to my hotel when I saw a sign up outside this chapel for a peace service. I am not a religious person but though it would be nice to experiece this in New York in December. I was made to feel very welcome. The service was in memory of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and others. There were... More

This is a beautiful chapel across from all the history that is Ground Zero. The tributes, altars and many personal notes that were left here after the attacks are still on display and really evoke the emotions that New Yorkers and our nation felt during that tragedy. We stood at the front door on a clear December day and looked... More

This Church left my husband & I speechless. The displays were gut-wrenching in their depiction of the 9:11 disaster. We were overcome with emotion here... Truly moving and well worth taking the time out of this bustling city to see. Just magnificent.

Visiting New York for the first time recently, obviously I wanted to see all the major sights and get the real 'feel' of the city. Ground Zero left me overcome with emotion, to think of all the unnecessary suffering of those who lost their lives, their families and the immense work done by all those brave rescuers; now its transformed...

Amazing architecture abound. This property is definitely a must stop on the New York tour if simply for the long history as well as the just amazing scenery. It will move you and melt your heart at the same time.
