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.

Trinity Church Reviews
Really beautiful church in lower Manhattan. It definitely reminded me of when it was featured in the movie National Treasure. Beautiful Architecture and neat little cemetery in the courtyard. more »
Es una iglesia muy pequeña, entramos para verla y la verdad es que es bonita. Lo que más sorprende es el contraste con los edificios tan altos que hay alrededor. También el jardín es grande y acogedor... more »It is a very small church, we go to see it and the truth is that it is beautiful. The most surprising thing is the contrast with the tall buildings around. Also the garden is big and cozy.
It is still under renovations but go access what you may. Trinity Church in downtown Manhattan is an absolute must see, once the renovations are finished. It is rich in architectural history. This is historic New York at its best. The grave sites here go back to the 1700s, which in itself is amazing. Located on Broadway right near Wall Street, behind Liberty Park, this church somehow was saved from the tragedy of 911 and it was right next to it. It was as if God would not let anything happen to the church and the people buried there. I've been to this church several times and the inside of it is absolutely beautiful. It is a small cathedral that basically explains how important religion was at that time in NYC. I've even had the chance to light a candle there. It is very peaceful and tranquil and a reminder to all that visit, that regardless of the noise of the buildings around it, and the tragedy that once loomed, there is still a sanctuary that was untouched during the 911 mishap. Make sure you visit this Church.
One of my daughters is a massive Hamilton musical fan, so she was delighted to unexpectedly visit the church graves & see Alexander, Philip & Eliza’s graves. We searched for Angelica’s but unfortunately couldn’t find it. This was a NY trip highlight for her and made up for not winning the Hamilton lottery. The church was closed, but it is a beautiful building & you can get a lovely view of part of it from Wall Street which is just opposite.
