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 is a small little chapel very well preserved and with a lot of history on it. The place is good to meditate, sightseeing and spend at least one hour

This is a great old church and was the place where the first responders for the 9/11 recovery would stop and rest. It was the only building in the area that did not have the windows broken out after the explosions

If you visit the 911 Memorial stroll across the street to St. Paul's chapel. In addition to its history with the founders of New York and George Washington's inauguration, after 911 it was a refuge for the 1st Responders and workers tasked with the grim task of digging through the rubble. There are many displays about the church's history and... More

Stepped into this church after visiting the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. Happened to be a rehearsal for a concert. Great way to lift our spirits.

This is the church right in front of the 2 towers of the World Trade Center. If this little church could talk, the stories it could tell. This sweet place was the resting ground for the thousands of courageous men and women who were at ground zero. There is a wooden pew which shows the grooves made by the boots... More

I cannot say enough about this historical chapel. It's one of the oldest (if not the oldest) church standing in New York City. It also contains a 9/11 chapel, and a bell from London donated to the City after the 9/11 attacks. The Bach concerts I've attended there are the best in the City and the ones I've gone to... More

This church was built in the 1760's, before the United States of America was a country. It survived the WTC disaster. George Washington became the 1st president down the street and attended this church. For a modern city like NY, this is a rare step back in time to the days of the early citizens. Walking tours of the WTC... More

What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. 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. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighbourhood home.
