Located in the Historic Wall Street District, Trinity Church lies at the intersection of Wall Street and Broadway. It is part of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.

The original church was built in 1697 followed by the second Trinity Church in 1705. That church had among it's parishioners, George Washington, John Jay and Alexander Hamilton. It was destroyed in 1776 in the Great Fire. The present church was built in the Gothic Rivival style between between 1839-1846 under the direction of architect Richard Upton. It's spire and cross is 281' above ground level. Up until 1869 it was the tallest structure in the United states. The church has a capacity of 652 parishioners.

There are three entrance doors to the church,east, south and north. The east and north doors have six panels depiciting church history and the Bible. The south door depicits the history of New York. The doors date from 1893 and their construction was financed by William Waldorf Aster. The church has an adjacent cemetry where such notables as Alexander Hamilton, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton,
Robert Fulton and Lord Sterling are buried.

Within walking distance, you can visit the Federal Hall where George Washington was inaugrated in 1789 and the Raging Bull & Fearless Girl statuary among other landmarks in this lower Manhattan area.

Beautiful architecture and serene calmness when observing from outside. I had no idea there was a cemetery there too

For the avid Hamilton fans, you can visit his grave (and Eliza's) through the fence on the south side!

Beautiful church. Enjoyed it from the outside as under restoration. The cemetery was peaceful amidst the city. Alexander Hamilton’s grave is visible through the fence.

My wife and I saw Trinity Church from the outside in July 2021. I have visited the church and cemetery many times in the past. Unfortunately this time it was closed to visitors while it undergoes renovation. You can see the grave of Alexander Hamilton from the outside by peering through the fence.

I came here to see the Hamilton gravesite and others buried nearby. Unfortunately, you weren't able to get in. When we tried to sweet talk the security guard, they referred to it as the site where "Anthony Hamilton" was buried. I couldn't deal with that so I left. Thankfully, you can see Alexander Hamilton's grave site from the road outside. Not really anybody else's but definitely his. Hopefully they will open back up to tours and to allow visitors to walk the grounds again.

Although it was under renovations when we went, we still got to see what we came for, HAMILTON!!! Can't wait to go back when it's fully reopened.

Trinity Church is in Lower Manhattan, at the corner of Wall St and Broadway. .It is a functioning parish of the Episcopal Church, feel free worship there, particularly if you are a member of the Anglican Communion. Trinity Church controls billions of dollars in property investments, making it one New York City's richest landlords. The graveyard is interesting, it contains the mortal remains of several well known New Yorkers, in particular Alexander Hamilton, first Secretary of the US Treasury. By the way, if you are looking for the grave of Ed Koch, the former New York Cityrmayor, it's at the other Trinity Church as the other end of Manhattan.

During a quick hop into the city, we stopped by Trinity Church and it's burial grounds.

Although the church was under renovation and closed, the grounds were accessible. Touring the grounds was like a walk through a history book.

Seeing gravestones like that of Alexander Hamilton was very interesting. Also interesting is Hamilton's gravesite in relation to Wall Street.

When hanging out in Lower Manhattan, take an hour and take a stroll.
