This service was beyond words. So peaceful and so serene. Sundays at 8pm a candle lite service. This we came upon by chance and would highly recommend the experience. Upon entering an attendant asked if we were there for the service, once we stated yes we were given a tapered candle. You can light this from any candle within the... More

When in the vicinity of the Freedom Tower, and the South pool of the Sept 11 War Memorial, you can stop for a few minutes, get out of the sun, go inside and marvel at the architecture.

This church with its dark wood pews it a beauty to behold. The graveyard on either side has impressively old graves. One special gravesite happens to be Alexander Hamilton.

My husband and I were on a mission, granted it was early in the morning, but we were late getting to a scheduled appt. We happened to turn a corner and here was Trinity Church. We just looked at each other and said, we have to go in. Inside the church was beautiful. The graveyard holds so much history. It... More

If visiting lower Manhattan Thrinity Church is worth visit. This 150+ year old church is so interesting. The 6 large bronze doors are amazing. The steeple which at one time was the tallest building in NYC and America. The graveyard is the final resting place to many historical figures like Alexander Hamilton, John James Audubon, John Jacob Astor and many... More

We saw Hamilton in July and the next day felt compelled to visit the grave of Alexander Hamilton. He is buried in the graveyard at Trinity Church along with his wife Eliza. The church is beautiful and located in the heart of Wall Street. There are tours every day at 2pm which I recommend so that you can learn more... More

Very historical and located right in an unusual place. It's very beautiful. Some of the security guards were rude to the tourists asking questions-they seemed to resent being asked to do both jobs, but if you just take the time to wander yourself, you won't need any assistance.

Beautiful church which is in sharp contrast to the modern buildings that surround it. The interior is just as impressive with beautiful stain glass windeow.

Also buried here include: John Jacob Astor; Robert Fulton (Fulton's Folly fame); Ralph Waldo Ellison; John James Audubon; Mayor Edward Koch; Actor Jerry Orbach; and so many people from our Nation's earliest...

Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
