    The 2nd oldest church in Manhattan, splitting from Trinity Church in 1799. Built on Dutch colonial governor Peter Stuyvesant’s farm, legend has it that the peg-legged Dutchman still haunts the area. Read more

    NYC's oldest site of continuous religious practice (and 2nd oldest church), this community active church goes back to when New York was called New Amsterdam. Peter Stuyvesant is entombed here.

    Look around the east side until you spot a shattered stone with no inscription. Grab the official map from the church and you'll see plot 9D with the note "His body was stolen". Who was this guy?

    Bored to Death happened here. In front of this church is where Jonathan creepily staked out an Al-Anon meeting to spy on his ex-girlfriend's new beau. Watch out.
