“Beautiful Chapel, Touching Memorial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

This is the beautiful chapel that remained standing after 9-11. You will not want to miss taking a few minutes while visiting Ground Zero to walk through this touching memorial. It is truly moving to see the outpouring of support from all over the world as well as view the historical significance of this church.

“Moving memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012


This chapel gives a very personal feel to 911. The small bed, the scratched church seat and the many items from around the world were very moving.

“Pleasant stop in lower Manhattan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

If you're in the area, this is certainly a stop worth making. It is touching to see the memorials left from 9/11.

“excellent attraction that isn't heavily promoted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We visited this week and really enjoyed it - right across from the WTC, St. Pauls contains a small cemetery, and there is a "hope Bell" donated from England, it is rung on specific occasions, e.g. 911, ww2 end etc.

Inside there are lots of 911 exhibits and tributes to victims and those who came to their aid.

“Another Must to Remember 9/11”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Another must on the list of places to visit. As an American, I can't help but feel obligated to pay my respects to all those who lost their lives on 9/11. This place is a must to pay our respects.
