This was not a planned stop, but we greatly enjoyed our visit to Trinity Church. The interior is beautiful, with amazing bronze doors, rich stained glass, and many gothic architectural details. The church is surrounded by burial grounds with graves dating back to the 1600s. The most popular gravesite is definitely Alexander Hamilton. I definitely recommend a visit to this... More

Trinity Church is actually on Broadway, not Wall St. as another review indicated. Wall St. starts directly opposite the church. However, it is considered "Wall Streets" church. It is part of the Episcopal diocese of NYC, and a city and US historic landmark. It has beautiful stained glass windows, great artwork and delicate wood work all around. It is a... More

Always nice to visit this church. Very typical over the top USA church attraction though. Very theatrical organ music that scared the living day lights out of us. Expected Dracula to walk out on us bizarrely enough. But this is a beautiful church and always lovely to go in and light candles for loved and lost ones.

It's such a quiet place, even though it's surrounded by busy city streets. The interior of the church is lovely and the graveyard, even if you are not specifically there to see Alexander Hamilton's grave, is fascinating. You could spend a long time reading each of the stones and looking at all the different architectural details on the gravestones and... More

Trinity was a spur of the moment stop on our way somewhere else. It was worth stopping as the gentleman that worked there also shared the history and patiently answered our questions. I loved everything about this beautiful, old church!

Trinity Church is actually on Wall Street. As they say about Wall Street "a river at one end and a church at the other." This church is very old, it is an Episcopalian Church. Look inside, the Church is very attractive. The church yard is famous. Among others interred there is Alexander Hamilton, the man who founded the US monetary... More

Tucked away in NYC Financial district is this beautiful church and cemetery. Well worth a visit, we enjoyed reading the headstones in the small cemetery. Alexander Hamilton and Robert Fulton are buried here.

We were in the church for quite sometime. Just watched the beauty of it. Lit the candles for prayers. Want to visit it once again .... This time listening to the preachings and the prayers.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. 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. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
