The chapel is closed for restoration until work is completed in the fall. The churchyard will remain open. St. Paul's Chapel is part of Trinity Wall Street, an Episcopal parish that has been a part of New York City since 1697. The parish is deeply rooted in the city’s and the nation’s history. Established during the British occupation of New York and recognized by royal charter, Trinity was the first Anglican Church (which followed the services of the Church of England and included the King or Queen in its prayers) in Manhattan. St. Paul's Chapel was founded in 1766 as a chapel-of-ease at Broadway and Fulton Street. George Washington prayed there after his inauguration as President in 1789. Located just across the street from the World Trade Center, St. Paul’s played an important role in hosting recovery workers after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Many tourists visit this small chapel for the simple reason because George Washington used to worship here after his inauguration in 1789 and this chapel became very famous.

I had been here on a previous visit so was a little disappointed that so much memorabilia from 9\11 had been removed.

This chapel was untouched by fire and then untouched by the collapse of the twin towers. Remarkable history and very moving from being the chapel of George Washington to the refuge of emergency workers 9/!!.

This chapel was prominently important when 911 happened. It was a place where people gathered and information was provided. It is small but is known for its outreach to the community.

St Pauls to me was more interesting on the outside than the inside. Great bell outside and walking around the place was a quick but memorable visit.

This was a very interesting place as most religions do not even know the creator's name and here you can see both his name in English and in Hebrew.

Our tour guide Derek was very knowledgeable and friendly. You start at the St. Paul chapel (which in case you didn't know is really close to ground zero, and sustained no destruction damage!) And go around about a 5 block tour towards the two waterfalls...More

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

Hi. No ticket necessary. It is free. It is great to take a look at one of the oldest churches in New York. You just have to make sure to go during visiting hours. There is also a great graveyard where people from over... More
