    Construida en 1766 es la iglesia mas antigua de la ciudad y aquí rezaba Washington. En el 9/11, a pesar de estar en frente del WTC, no sufrió ningún daño.Buen lugar pa' sentarse un rato y usar el baño

    Listen to choir rehearsal and light a candle. You can even leave a written thought or prayer.

    Must see in lower Manhattan. Don't miss the early painting of the Great Seal of the United States: the eagle looks suspiciously like a turkey. Seen on Free Tour of New York.

    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.

    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

    The cemetery is the resting place of actor George Frederick Cook's headless body. Cook donated his head to science upon his death, and visitors report seeing a headless man walking around at night. Read more

    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.

    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.

    Very close to the September 11 memorial but much less crowded. Perfect place to come for some quiet reflection.

    Featured in Ubisoft video game Assassin’s Creed III. Built in 1766 St Paul's is Manhattan's oldest continuously used public building. George Washington worshiped here when New York was the US capital.

    A must see landmark if touring the 9/11 site - won't take long but tremendously impactful.

    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.

    Joseph Mathews · November 27, 2010

    This is one of the few surviving colonial-era churches in NYC. George Washington, along with members of the U.S. Congress, worshipped here on his Inauguration Day, on April 30, 1789.
