This chapel housed workers after the 9/11 tragedy. The grounds around it include a cemetery with headstones dating back to the 1700s. It is a very moving spot to visit

Charming Chapel that sits in lower Manhattan. From the days of George Washington to the heartache of 9/11 this Chapel has played its role.

It's obviously not as big as St. Patrick's Cathedral, nor as beautiful. But, it has its charm. The fact that it seems like it has been involved in important moments of our history, it's amazing.
