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.

The display inside the Church is perhaps the most moving aspect of the Ground Zero memorial and not to be missed

“Clash of old vs. new”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Set in the shadow of the WTC, this Age old chapel is completely dwarfed by the huge buildings of downtown manhattan. There are a series of memorials and info boards giving respect to the WTC terrorism, including a bell donated by the city of London which also pays respect to other cities which have been victim of large scale terror attacks.

“St Paul's Chapel”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

An enormously emotional experience - having followed 911 events the impact of seeing the Chapel and the various 911 memorial exhibits left all very reflective

We just went there to look around , there was a mass going on and we didn't feel right walking in during the middle of it. But the chapel was absolutely breath taking . We lit a candle for my dad who passed away and said a prayer and left so we did not disturb anyone .

This was truly the best thing about our visit to, and near the WTC site. It's very real, costs only a donation, and is explanatory, truthful, humble and sad. the memory of this place will stay with us in a very sad, but good way
