“A Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

So much history- George Washington attended church services at St Pauls for one year while NYC was the nations capitol. The huge role this church played in the aftermath of 9/11 is also quite amazing. It is part of the 9/11 walking tour- we highly suggest you take this tour offered. You will gain the most from your visit here (we had Rob as our guide and he told us so many pertinent stories about this church!)…the walking tour costs money but entry to the church is free!

“Lovely & inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Small historic chapel which was a respite for rescue workers after 9/11. Moving displays and place for quiet reflection.

“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

St. Pauls is a beautiful church which is well worth a visit, I felt very emotional when inside St. Pauls, seeing all the 9/11 memorabilia. it was very moving.

“Ground Zero Sanctuary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

I loved being at St Paul's not only for it's place in 9/11 but also for the history....it's the oldest surviving church in New York City. George Washington attended services there, and did so after his inauguration in 1789. Took a beautiful photo of Freedom Tower from the cemetery at St Paul's.
