About Trinity Church

Trinity Church, located at Broadway and Wall Street, is an active Episcopal church with a deep history. In 1697, a little over 70 years after the Dutch settled New York as a trading post known as New Amsterdam, Trinity Church was granted a charter by King William III of England. Since then, Trinity has been an integral part of New York City. Today, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel (just a few blocks north) are the cornerstones of Trinity Church Wall Street, a growing and vibrant Episcopal community.

Worship services are offered in Trinity Church throughout the week, including morning and evening prayer and a noonday Eucharist every weekday. On Sunday, the Trinity community gathers for Holy Eucharist at 9am and 11:15am, which is webcast live. All are invited to attend. Music by Trinity’s renowned choir is integrated into many of the services and free concerts are held throughout the fall and spring. Find a calendar of worship services, concerts, and other events here.

The steeple’s 12 change-ringing bells are the only set in the United States; they rotate a full 360 degrees, producing a shimmering, cascading sound in a complex combination of changing tonal patterns. They can be heard on Sundays and special occasions.

The present building is the third on the site, consecrated in 1846 and designed by British-born architect Richard Upjohn in the 19th century Gothic Revival style. The first church was lost in New York’s Great Fire of 1776 and the second was demolished in 1839, at Upjohn’s suggestion, after heavy snowfall revealed structural problems. The current building is a registered National Historic Landmark.

Visitors to the church can view the decorative bronze doors at the Broadway entrance; see some of the oldest stained glass in the United States; or stop for a moment to pray in the nave or All Saint’s Chapel, located in the northwest corner of the church. Trinity’s churchyard is also open to visitors who wish to see the gravesite of Alexander Hamilton and other historical memorials and monuments, or enjoy a moment of quiet in the midst of busy Lower Manhattan.

Free guided tours are offered Monday-Friday at 2pm and Sundays after the 11:15am service. Trinity’s Tour app also provides a virtual guide through Trinity and St. Paul’s Chapel. Free Visitors Guides in five languages are also available in the Church Gift Shop.

Walking by the chapel the compelling feature about the church besides its exterior is the large, stained-glass window that greets its patrons as people enter. The church is small, but worth the visit and it is recommended a visit earlier in the day with fewer people. As a side note this is the church that was in the movie, "National... More

Situated on Broadway opposite Wall Street. A quite space away from the hustle and bustle of Broaway and Wall Street.

Wow, what a gorgeous place to visit! It's an amazing place of history, being built in the first decade of the 1600s (I believe in 1609). To think that George Washington came here for services after being elected the first President of the United States! The stained glass windows and carved wood of the organs are all incredibly beautiful. I... More

This place felt somehow quiet amongst the bustle. In reality it was probably just a lot quieter than the main avenues. Starkly different architecture and a well maintained graveyard seemed more historical than a lot of sights in lower Manhattan.

Take time to pop by this charming church within walking distance of the 9/11 Memorial. The church itself is exquisite; but it's the very old cemetery which is most interesting. Some of the gravestones are so old they are unreadable, but you can make out dates and words on many. Be sure to stop by Alexander Hamilton's grave marked by... More

This is an historic church with an adjacent graveyard that deserves to be seen by any history buff. While the play Hamilton is near impossible to get tickets for, you can come here and see the actual grave of the man who inspired the broadway show. In addition, Robert Fulton is buried here as is Albert Gallatin (look him up)... More

If into history and in lower Manhattan put this on your list. Beautiful odds church and the burial site of Alexander Hamilton and his family. Was there only 1/2 hour before moving to next tourist location.

Must see this historic church and walk trough its cemetery. Very happy we did this. Most grave stones are from the early 1700's. The stain glass inside the church Is beautiful. It Doesn't take long to walk through and appreciate.
