“Highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We visited this little church during a Sunday morning service and it was so moving.
What a beautiful memorial to the lives of all those lost and wonderful to see how everyone supported each other. A must see.

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Worth seeing. The workmanship is beautiful and it is very quiet so gives a nice place for contemplation in a busy city.

“So moved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Went to this chapel after visiting the TT memorial , seeing all the faces of the people who had been tragically taken from us. The message s people have left. And the support people have given and are giving to each other is overwhelming.

“Very moving to see in person.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This old chapel, affilicated with Trinity church down the street, stands right across the street from ground zero. While it has been a historic site for many years, it is now even more historic as it served as a staging area for WTC search and rescue operations. When you see how close it is to the site, it's enough to make you believe in miracles.
