This small, beautiful chapel is grounded in America's founding history (it was founded in the 18th century and George Washington worshipped here), as well as in more recent history - given it's geographic location near the World Trade Center site, it offered refuge to first responders. There are stuffed animals and other memorials to acknowledge 9/11, in a sobering yet comforting reminder of where we've been and how far we've come. There's also a small cemetery next to the chapel. It's both a memorial and an active church with services, so while you're allowed to walk through the chapel, please remember to be respectful of the community still praying there.…

This wasnt on our list to visit until we visited the 9/11 memorial. This place was used during that awful day in 2001. A beautiful church.

We were instructed to meet our guide for the 9/11 walking tour in front of this chapel. We were early and could hear music inside the chapel. We went in and they were rehearsing for a Christmas concert. It was great to get out of the cold and enjoy this beautiful chapel, which is an active congregation, and listen to the choirs. This is a great place to visit even if there is not a choir rehearsal. A very historic church.It has seen much of NYC and American history, and was not harmed during the awful destruction of the Towers that stood across the street!!…

St. Paul's is a lovely little chapel, but they stopped giving tours even though tours are still listed on their website, so there really isn't anything unusual to see or do there. Sure, stop in if you're visiting the 911 Memorial, but don't make a special trip just for this.

After visiting the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and seeing the support that was provided from St. Paul's Chapel after 9/11, we stopped in for a quick visit. Definitely worth a quick stop!
