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.

This church is full of interesting information and facts. We loved attempting to read the headstones. We were amazed each time we came across a stone from the 1700's where the date of death, placed them at a very old age. From my history lessons, most people in the 1700-1800's lived only into their 30-40's. Don't miss this gem. Side... More

Beautiful, well-maintained historic church right between the financial district and the 9/11 memorial. Many famous historic figures buried there, including Alexander Hamilton and Robert Fulton.

Lovely peaceful historic church. As you walk in read the plaque on the floor commemorating Queen Elizabeth's visit. The outside cemetery is filled with many graves dating back to the early 1700's. Some are so weathered that the enscriptions have disappeared. Check out Alexander and Eliza Hamilton's, Robert Fulton's graves and many other revolutionary patriots.

Really wanted to see the church and churchyard after seeing the National Treasure film. We walked through the churchyard imagining Nicholas Cage hiding behind the headstones! We went into the church which is huge . The colours in the massive stained glass window are amazing. We lit candles for our absent family and left a message in the visitors book.

The church is beautiful inside and out and is worth a visit if you're nearby (9/11 Memorial/City Hall/Bowling Green all within a few minutes walk). The big draw now is Alexander Hamilton's grave, less because of his historical importance than the attention to the Broadway musical (although my 10-year old daughter insisted on visiting because of this-so if this gets...

Beautiful small church tucked in between the skyscrapers of the Financial District, it is easy to find between the New York Sock Exchange and the New World Trade Center. Lovely architecture in and out- worth a visit if you are in the area.

The inside of Trinity Church is very attractive with beautiful stained glass windows and historic chapels, but the real attraction is the churchyard where many famous Americans of the revolutionary war period are buried. These include Alexander Hamilton, General Gates, and a monument to the POWs who died on prison ships. The oldest grave dates to 1681. This is definitely... More

The church is across from Wall Street and is the burial place of Alexander Hamilton and his wife. Pretty church, both interior and exterior, and the cemetery is worth spending some time.

GPS doesn't work in this neighborhood, so ask a local how to find the church. Once you get there, you can find the grave site of Hamilton on the South side of the church near the middle of the yard by the fence near the street.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
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.
