Owner description: 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.

This chapel gives a very personal feel to 911. The small bed, the scratched church seat and the many items from around the world were very moving.

If you're in the area, this is certainly a stop worth making. It is touching to see the memorials left from 9/11.

We visited this week and really enjoyed it - right across from the WTC, St. Pauls contains a small cemetery, and there is a "hope Bell" donated from England, it is rung on specific occasions, e.g. 911, ww2 end etc.

Inside there are lots of 911 exhibits and tributes to victims and those who came to their aid.

Another must on the list of places to visit. As an American, I can't help but feel obligated to pay my respects to all those who lost their lives on 9/11. This place is a must to pay our respects.

Amongst the hustle and bustle of the ground zero area is a chapel that has survived time in quite its own fashion. It is so well preserved and seems to have an opinion that resonates with a visitor that it has reason to have been there so very long-Just stand outside the lovely gates, or go in and visit...either way you will know you are on special ground!!!
