Overview

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.

Haven’t visited St.Paul’s since the early 1970’s, decided to stop in with our daughter while at 9/11 Memorial! We walked through the old cemetery out front for awhile before entering the chapel. The cemetery is quite amazing to walk through looking at the informational plaques...More

Certainly this place does have a history and the storyboards around the walls tell the tale very well. Curiously there is a security scanner as you enter. Anyhow, it was damaged very little during the 9/11 atrocity and so it is in the main as...More

St. Paul's is from a different era and worth visiting. the old church is historic and charming. It offers many artistic and cultural activities on its premises. the Public Theater will be presenting free Shakespeare this Spring.

This is a very old NYC church with tons of history and was used to treat 9/11 victims, jerseys from all over the world hung here. In summer they hold vocal concerts there

Stopped there and really loved the cuteness of the chapel as well as the location near the world trade center. It is just amazing that this church stood up even after the towers went down.

To think this small chapel survived 9/11 is remarkable. There must be spiritual forces protecting it from harm. Lovely tribute to first responders.
