The chapel is closed for restoration until work is completed in the fall. The churchyard will remain open.

St. Paul's Chapel is part of Trinity Wall Street, an Episcopal parish that has been a part of New York City since 1697. The parish is deeply rooted in the city’s and the nation’s history. Established during the British occupation of New York and recognized by royal charter, Trinity was the first Anglican Church (which followed the services of the Church of England and included the King or Queen in its prayers) in Manhattan.

 

St. Paul's Chapel was founded in 1766 as a chapel-of-ease at Broadway and Fulton Street. George Washington prayed there after his inauguration as President in 1789. Located just across the street from the World Trade Center, St. Paul’s played an important role in hosting recovery workers after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

We first visited St Paul's in October 2002, the chapel was overflowing with photographs and messages posted i the wake of the attacks on the World Trade Centre. The makeshift beds and items of clothing used by the rescue teams who worked around the clock and made the chapel their 'home' were there, flags from around the world and banners... More

A unique building and historical in its own right. I suggest getting a tour guide like we did. The history of "what didn't " happen to the building during 911 is incredible.

A little chapel that survived the devastation of 9/11. It is truly amazing that almost everything around it was demolished. It became a refuge for the responders as they took turns resting between rescues. There remains letters and memorabilia from people taking part in this disaster. A very historic stop and definitely worth a visit.

Great place to visit and see. It is quick and doesn't take too long, but they have the pews available to see, as well as all the letters and memorabilia people sent in from all over for the responders as they took turns resting before continuing to rescue people.

A must stop for the history buff and ardent Catholic, St. Paul's is a quiet respite from the busy tourist trail.

This church's history stretches from President George Washington to modern day. There are memorials related to 9/11. Definitely worth a visit while in the area.

Visited while waiting for 911 memorial tour to start. You can go into the chapel area and light a candle. You can go also go into the cemetery area as well. The 911 memorial tour started here and while waiting for that went in to the chapel to find a group packing lunches to serve that day -- this chapel... More

Beautiful 17th century church that served as a triage station on 9/11. Very moving story and miraculous this building survived with only one broken window to be a place of refuge and healing!

This beautiful chapel has been here for 250 years. If you take time to visit and go inside, you will see pictures of how the landscape around the church has changed through out its long history. The memorial gardens were lovely during the spring and the gravestone old and weathered. It takes just a little time to visit this part... More
