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.

I worked in NY years ago, but this time we took our 11 and 7-year old grandchildren for their first trip there. On the bus tour, the guide was pointing out the towering new One World Trade building, so my wife shot several pictures of the 102 story "needle." When we got home, viewing the photos, this lovely old church... More

I know from prior trips that this is a GREAT place to visit, if you are in lower Manhattan, but it was closed during our recent visit. The cemetery surrounding the church was open, however, & you can often catch a tour guide giving a talk about the day of 9/11 & how it affected the church.

You don't expect to see this beautiful and peaceful haven in NY, but it is there for you. St. Paul is very important in the Christian Faith, and it is refreshing to enter the Church with his name. When you go, don't expecting St. Patrick's, but see its beauty for its own sake.

The architectural detail is amazing. It was nice to go there and escape from the buzz of the city. Very peaceful and quiet and it is airconditioned inside. It is free to visit anytime. They held mass at specific times each day. A must see along 5th ave.

This church is beautiful and survived a lot. Stop in and check out its history. It is also a great spot to take pictures of the world trade center.

If you have visited many historic places and churches in europe, this one might leave you not so excited. Unless if you are into religion and you need to go. Better places to go in NY

This wonder old church where George Washington worshipped and 9/11 rescue workers rested is currently under restoration. Repainting the Sanctuary to colonial colors removes the odd pink and blue from walls and ceiling.
