Every time I go to NYC I stop at this church to remember September 11.
beautiful little chapel in the middle of the busy city...
A must see landmark if touring the 9/11 site - won't take long but tremendously impactful.
A moving tribute to the heroes and victims of 9/11/2001
World trade tower
Where fireman from 9/11 slept in their gear on the pews. If the same pews are still here you will see scratches from their gear on the pews.
use the restroom and rest your feet for free
The Priest stands outside on Ash Wednesday. You can get your ashes inside of the church or outside. Love it!
Gone but not forgotten...
Having survived the intentional destruction of all symbols of British authority in 1776, the gilded coronet over the pulpit is likely the only remaining symbol of British rule in NYC.
The pulpit in this chapel is topped with a gilded coronet, a remaining symbol of colonial rule.
Less Chinese tourists here. Great!
One of the few surviving colonial-era churches in city; George Washington worshipped here following his inauguration; site of informal memorials following September 11 terrorist attacks
A hidden gem of the 9/11 Memorial
This is the only building that didn't burn when 9/11 happened. Check to see if they still sale the book 'The Little Chapel That Stood.' I bought mine here in '03.
Very close to the September 11 memorial but much less crowded. Perfect place to come for some quiet reflection.
Stop here after visiting the 9/11 memorial.
Quiet place to see tributes to the rescuers and where they laid their wads after long shifts.
Try to be present at 12:30 when the Chapel pauses to pray for peace and reconciliation as part of it's ministry in the Community of the Cross of Nails.
