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.

Just the mere fact that this Chapel withstood the devastation of 911 is amazing on its own. The Chapel inside is beautiful. Make sure you go into the small room to the back of the church where they keep all the memorabilia. Holy Ground for sure!!!

You can see it from very far. It is very attractive and beautiful amongst the high rise buildings. You would take many pictures.

St. Paul's Chapel, or "The Little Chapel That Stood", is an Episcopal chapel located at 209 Broadway, between Fulton Street and Vesey Street, in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Built in 1766, it is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan. My husband and I did a "Ground Zero Tour" and this is where it started at St. Paul's. We... More

Wonderful place. The inside is ok but especially the little graveyard/park outside is wonderful. The trees give shade and there are benches to sit and contemplate. Very nice place to visit.

We started a visit to the 9-11 memorial and museum here. As well as being church George Washington attended and took his oath of office, it was really important in recovery and rebuilding at the World Trade Center after 9-11. It was almost untouched even though just across street from the site.

Just pop by here for a quick photo op and taste of history. It's almost easy to miss if you don't know what you're looking for, but well worth seeking out.

We only had time to walk by the church, but it was worth the detour to see it and the grounds. From the top of the WTC, it's insignificant compared to all the other tall buildings, but in person it's beautiful. The 250 year old graveyard is straight out of a Lovecraft story.

In the midst of all the destruction on 9/11 the nearby St. Paul's Chapel was not damaged. Not even the glass in the windows. By now, everybody knows about the rescue workers taking refuge there. It was in the news for months. Visiting the church brings back the memories of that fateful day. There is much history preserved here -... More

Regardless if you are a christian, a catholic or an atheist, you should not miss visiting St. Paul's chapel...I loved the building architecture and the eerie feeling that there's a lot history happened in the oldest church in Manhattan.

I have made a point to visit this church as often as possible ever since visiting for the first time in 2005. It has been years since I've seen it and when I walked into the church I was taken back just a little bit. The banners of support that were hung up on the ceiling were gone it just... More
