    Oldest NYC surviving church. Removed all pews in 2007. Statue of St. Paul Apostle above entrance said to "come alive" at night. In rear cemetery is Bell of Hope rung every 9/11. More info via our blog Read more

    Offers a great family-oriented service at 9:15 AM on Sunday mornings. Also has lots of history! Look forward to the 250th anniversary celebration in late October 2016.

    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.

    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.

    A beautiful little chapel in the middle of busy Manhattan. Don't miss Washington's Pew.

    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

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

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

    The Priest stands outside on Ash Wednesday. You can get your ashes inside of the church or outside. Love it!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Quiet place to see tributes to the rescuers and where they laid their wads after long shifts.

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

    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
