A pillar of the community in lower Manhattan, Trinity Church has played an integral part in New York history from the Revolutionary War to present day. In 1698 Capt. William Kidd gave the runner and tackle from his ship to the builders for hoisting during construction.The church was rebuilt twice before the final reconstruction was completed in 1846. Admire the bronze doors and 23 bells, which reflect the rich patronage the church has received throughout the years. See the burial place of Alexander Hamilton and other famed New Yorkers in the cemetery. Near the burial grounds, you can also visit the tree sculpture commemorating those lost on 9/11. The church is still active with services and a full music program.

I came here to see the Hamilton gravesite and others buried nearby. Unfortunately, you weren't able to get in. When we tried to sweet talk the security guard, they referred to it as the site where... more »
A great historic landmark not to miss while on a walking tour of the financial district in New York. We visited here on a cool morning and it wasn't crowded. The architecture of this beautiful building catches our eyes from far away. Grand from outside and grand from inside. It's really decorated and maintained very well. Such a peaceful place to be at amongst the hustle and bustle of the busy city of New York. We were here for about half an hour but someone can spend more time based on how much leisure they have. Would like to visit again and spend some more time there.
The main cathedral was undergoing renovations while we were there, so only the chapel was open. The financial district is a relatively easy walk. It's not as big as midtown or uptown, and I think I liked it best of all.
