About
Trinity Church, located at Broadway and Wall Street, is an active Episcopal church with a deep history. In 1697, a little over 70 years after the Dutch settled New York as a trading post known as New Amsterdam, Trinity Church was granted a charter by King William III of England. Since then, Trinity has been an integral part of New York City. Today, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel (just a few blocks north) are the cornerstones of Trinity Church Wall Street, a growing and vibrant Episcopal community. Sunday services at 9:15am are also held in Trinity's Chapel of All Saints, and 9am family service and 8 pm Compline services take place at St. Paul’s Chapel. During the week, you can join us in the Chapel of All Saints at these times as well: Morning Prayer Weekdays at 8:15 am and 9 am; Midday Eucharist Weekdays at 12:05 pm; and Evening Prayer Weekdays at 5:15 pm.

    Trinity Church with Hamilton Loving Teens
    So little in New York is free and really worth experiencing. Trinity Church is that place. The beautiful church and adjoining rooms, combined with the excitement of seeing Alexander, Eliza, and Phillip Hamilton’s resting place, make this a must see for any Hamilton fan. And Hercules Mulligan! My teens really enjoyed this stop, and it’s proximity to the WTC memorial made it a moving, inexpensive morning. If you’re looking to up the cost, be sure to stop by Century 21 department store nearby.

    Passing by within 5 minutes of the organ striking up…
    …so I went in for the 11.15am Sunday Eucharist. It’s a really attractive physical environment and at a human level, it’s warm, welcoming and friendly. It was almost ‘standing room only’. When the organist did start playing, the sound that ricocheted around the building was magnificent, no less so the singing from the circa 16 choristers. They were seriously impressive, their harmonies pitch perfect, powerful, sensitive, rich and evocative. The service itself was straightforward and easily navigable thanks to a very professionally presented and engaging service pamphlet. And Matthew who delivered the sermon was thankfully relevant and appropriately ‘entertaining’. 75 minutes later and I re-entered the secular world thoroughly uplifted, thoroughly energised.

    Historic church
    Historic Episcopal church in the Gothic Revival style - It’s the third church building to be constructed on this site. There’s a quick bag check to enter the church. Adjacent to the church is the Trinity Churchyard where several notable figures are buried - Alexander Hamilton, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, Philip Hamilton, Angelica Schuyler Church, Hercules Mulligan, Robert Fulton, William Bradford, & more.

    New York's Trinity Church is a remarkable structure in Manhattan. Surrounded by Wall Street's tall skyscrapers, it maintains a tranquil, secluded character. Interior is simple but solemn. The stained glass is impressive.

    Beautiful church and fascinating historical cemetery
    Most people visit this church for the cemetery. It’s incredible to see so many well preserved tombstones, many of which are pre-revolutionary war. The grounds are very well cared for, and the security guards that patrol the church are polite and professional. If you have time, it’s worth a quick stop to pay respects and also visit Alexander and Elisa Hamilton’s graves.

    Nice Church
    Trinity Church is in the heart of the financial district of Manhattan. I found it quite easily and it is a short distance from the New York Stock Exchange. I found this quite interesting, I wonder of the people who work in the stock exchange go to Trinity church afterwards. The church is a really lovely traditional building and if you like church architecture you will probably enjoy this.

    Beautiful and Historically Significant Church in the Financial District
    Historically significant and beautiful Episcopalian church that sits in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan at the intersection of Wall St and Broadway. This is the third version of Trinity Church with the original built on this site in 1697. The current church was completed in 1846. Amazingly it was the tallest building in the United States until 1869 and remained the tallest building in New York City until 1890. Its cemetery is the final resting place for many famous figures from history, most notably Alexander Hamilton. His grave can be easily spotted along Rector Street.

    Just brilliant and so welcoming!!
    WOW -- such a beautiful church and amazing that there is no cost to tour. The stained glass windows are gorgeous and we were fortunate enough to get to hear one of the clergy practicing on the organ and that wqs FAB!! The church and adjoining rooms, have some beautiful paintings, sculptures, etc. - not to mention the outside graveyard lets you see Alexander, Eliza, and Phillip Hamilton’s resting place. I definitely recommend stopping in Trinity Church the next time you are near Wall Street and the 9/11 memorial.

Close to the Twin Towers memorial. Historic church amongst the modern city buildings. Striking and historical. The cherub gate will please east Enders.

I think it may be the second most famous/visited church in NYC after St. Patrick cathedral, it's an old, big and beautiful church, but it's very dim inside, not easy to take good picture, it requires security check, also need to have COVID vaccination records and when masks when we visited there in Aug 2022, but sure if this measures will be removed later.
