About
Trinity Church, located at Broadway and Wall Street, is an active Episcopal church with a deep history. In 1697, a little over 70 years after the Dutch settled New York as a trading post known as New Amsterdam, Trinity Church was granted a charter by King William III of England. Since then, Trinity has been an integral part of New York City. Today, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel (just a few blocks north) are the cornerstones of Trinity Church Wall Street, a growing and vibrant Episcopal community. Sunday services at 9:15am are also held in Trinity's Chapel of All Saints, and 9am family service and 8 pm Compline services take place at St. Paul’s Chapel. During the week, you can join us in the Chapel of All Saints at these times as well: Morning Prayer Weekdays at 8:15 am and 9 am; Midday Eucharist Weekdays at 12:05 pm; and Evening Prayer Weekdays at 5:15 pm.

    A historical site to visit
    A very impressive church. We decided to visit the church and cemetery. We went through security to enter the church. The security workers were very nice and friendly. We went mainly to visit the cemetery. It’s a neat historical place to visit.

    Trinity Church is a great place to visit and full and so much history. The grave sites of Alexander Hamilton, Eliza Hamilton, their son and Robert Fulton are located there. It was especially fun to visit the church and follow up that night with watching Hamilton at the Richard Rogers Theatre. The church is magnificent with such architectural design. The grounds are very tranquil and serene. The location is perfect for walking from the Downtown Marriott. No charge to enter, but I did make a donation to the church.

    Trinity Church with Hamilton Loving Teens
    So little in New York is free and really worth experiencing. Trinity Church is that place. The beautiful church and adjoining rooms, combined with the excitement of seeing Alexander, Eliza, and Phillip Hamilton’s resting place, make this a must see for any Hamilton fan. And Hercules Mulligan! My teens really enjoyed this stop, and it’s proximity to the WTC memorial made it a moving, inexpensive morning. If you’re looking to up the cost, be sure to stop by Century 21 department store nearby.

    Passing by within 5 minutes of the organ striking up…
    …so I went in for the 11.15am Sunday Eucharist. It’s a really attractive physical environment and at a human level, it’s warm, welcoming and friendly. It was almost ‘standing room only’. When the organist did start playing, the sound that ricocheted around the building was magnificent, no less so the singing from the circa 16 choristers. They were seriously impressive, their harmonies pitch perfect, powerful, sensitive, rich and evocative. The service itself was straightforward and easily navigable thanks to a very professionally presented and engaging service pamphlet. And Matthew who delivered the sermon was thankfully relevant and appropriately ‘entertaining’. 75 minutes later and I re-entered the secular world thoroughly uplifted, thoroughly energised.

    Historic church
    Historic Episcopal church in the Gothic Revival style - It’s the third church building to be constructed on this site. There’s a quick bag check to enter the church. Adjacent to the church is the Trinity Churchyard where several notable figures are buried - Alexander Hamilton, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, Philip Hamilton, Angelica Schuyler Church, Hercules Mulligan, Robert Fulton, William Bradford, & more.

    New York's Trinity Church is a remarkable structure in Manhattan. Surrounded by Wall Street's tall skyscrapers, it maintains a tranquil, secluded character. Interior is simple but solemn. The stained glass is impressive.

    Beautiful church and fascinating historical cemetery
    Most people visit this church for the cemetery. It’s incredible to see so many well preserved tombstones, many of which are pre-revolutionary war. The grounds are very well cared for, and the security guards that patrol the church are polite and professional. If you have time, it’s worth a quick stop to pay respects and also visit Alexander and Elisa Hamilton’s graves.

I think it may be the second most famous/visited church in NYC after St. Patrick cathedral, it's an old, big and beautiful church, but it's very dim inside, not easy to take good picture, it requires security check, also need to have COVID vaccination records and when masks when we visited there in Aug 2022, but sure if this measures will be removed later.

Trinity Church is gorgeous! I feel like it's a secret gem in the busy city. Take a moment to visit the beautiful church inside and wander the graveyard with several famous people buried there including Alexander Hamilton.

Trinity Church is a remarkable institution. Alexander Hamilton, founder of the US financial system is buried here, in the Trinity Church graveyard. You can see his tomb. Trinity Church is in the Financial District, at the corner of Wall Street and Broadway in NYC; visitors are welcome. It's a parish of the Episcopalian Church. The distinguished building, in Gothic Revival style,, is an NYC landmark Trinity Church dates from the early 19th century. Trinity Church is a major investor, it's one of the richest religious institutions in NYC.
