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 church is one of the oldest in NYC and survived and aided in the rescue mission of the Sept 11 tragedy. It serves to remind us of the mission of the Episcopal church to serve God's children in all times.

Small Chapel close to the 9/11 memorium. Free entry, and a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle. Worth a visit.

It was an emotional visit knowing that so many people that worked during the aftermath of 9/11 had been in this building, the special room designated to 9/11 brought me to tears. The history of this place is impressive, don't miss it if you are in the area.

When you are in lower Manhattan, a stop here is worth it, the oldest public building in continuous use in New York City. It has an unassuming elegance and quiet beauty.

This chapel is a must-see. They have done a beautiful job setting up their chapel for visitors and creating a tribute room to first responders during the 9/11 attacks. I learned a lot from my visit there and I am really glad we stopped in. It is not necessarily a spot that is heavily promoted either so I think a... More

This facility, built in 1776, is considered to be the oldest public building in continuous use in Manhattan. Located only a block or two from the World Trade Center, its historic graveyard was littered with debris after 9/11, but only a single pane of glass in the church was damaged. This is a lovely chapel and it hosts an ambitious... More

Historic chapel with incredible history. They remodeled for their 250 anniversary. The inside is fairly plain and they have museum type displays running along the inside walls. They moved their 9/11 items and memorial to a smaller space inside. TIP: Well worth a visit and there is no cost to get in.

An attractive neighbourhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting.
