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.

As soon as you walk up to this church just opposite Ground Zero you feel and see for your very own eyes the love / tears / and sense of what happened that day :( as you walk in you / read how this was a place that everybody came for solace n pray to understand what happened - and how it has brought so many people to together not just that day but still does - a place to be visited x very moving - I came away from St Paul's with a sad face but with a happy heart that this place existed for everybody to go to x

We took a Viator tour of 911 Memorial and the guide took us in St. Paul's Chapel. They have memorial tributes to the heros of 911. It's amazing that this chapel survived the aftermath of 911. It was a very solumn experience.

The memorials in the chapel are beautiful. It's amazing to look at the chandeliers hanging in the church and the hebrew symbols within.

Very moving, the chapel was beautiful and the displays of the work there after 9/11 was very personal. It made you feel the workers and volunteer blood, sweat and tears.
