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.

We visited the chapel before our 9/11 memorial tour. It’s such a peaceful old chapel with lots of history. Our guide told us how it played it’s part during the 9/11 attacks and how it escaped practically unscathed. Even though everything around it crumbled to...More

This is a lovely historic chapel. It's well presented and tells its history well. Has a graveyard that's interesting as well. The chapel where George Washington attended church after his church was destroyed in a fire.

When we visited, the Chapel was under restoration and closed to the public, so we could only look inside from a distance. This is definitely an old, historical church, and interesting to see. The grounds also had a cemetery which was very different, and somewhat...More

Started our World Trade Centre tour from this chapel. The guide shared the history and it's role during the 911 crisis. The place feels serene. Worth a visit.

It's a nice old church that has survived quite a bit, including 9/11. On the inside, you can read about the church's and NYC's history and see pictures on a nice display created along the walls.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
