Beautiful and historically significant church. New York's oldest sight of continuous religious practice with the original chapel built in 1660 by Petrus Stuyvesant who was one of the original founders of the city. The current Episcopal church was completed in 1799 and is still noteworthy of being the second oldest standing church in Manhattan. The church has had many famous congregation members including New York mayor and later VP of the United States Daniel Tompkins and Commodore Matthew C Perry.

I was wandering around the Lower East Side and bumped into this very old church with a yard around it. I read the signs outside and could see that they have community programs and arts. This is one of the few remnants of very old NY.

Came here primarily to see the tomb of Peter Stuyvesant, the Dutch leader of New Netherland, what would later become New York City! Very old part of the city with other Dutch settlers buried here.

You'd come here for probably 2 reasons - the beauty of the church and the history associated with the early days of New York. I love the history associated with Peter Stuyvesant and this is something you will never find around the touristy parts like Times Square. Probably helps to read this time of New York before visiting these parts, it will be much more meaningful.

I really enjoyed visiting this church. It is beautiful from the outside (I was unable to go inside because it seemed like it was being renovated). It is possible to visit part of the grounds.

Located 2 blocks from Tompkins Square Park, St. Mark's is worth the detour! Beautiful church with a rich history that dates back to the mid 1600s. Highly recommend!

This is the second oldest church in New York. It was once the chapel on the Stuyvesant farm. Today it's an Episcopal church.
The sanctuary is a bit bare and disappointing, but the graveyard is very interesting. There are many interesting tombs here, including Peter Stuyvesant.

No kidding! This church, with Hamilton as one of the founders maintains its iconoclast cred with superb music, clean, simple, yet funky, interior. A place that truly celebrates diversity. And now with a new minister, the great, Rev. Anne Sawyer - this church can't be stopped. And a church offering a Disco Service - I mean, come on, this place is awesome.

We came to see this as part of a walking tour of the village and were impressed by the beauty of the church and the interesting history. It was amazing to see where Peter Stuyvesant is buried.

This Protestant Episcopal church on 2nd Ave between 10th & 11th St. stands on the site of the last Dutch Governor Peter Stuyvesant's private Dutch Reformed chapel (1799) and was attended by his descendants, many of whom lived nearby, for generation. His name is commemorated in numerous sites nearby, including Stuyvesant Square and the vast housing project named Stuyvesant Town. He is buried in the family vault on the premises. This site is reportedly the oldest in use by a Christian congregation. The Greek Revival steeple was added later. Striking abstract design stained glass windows were installed in the 80s. Enter the quiet yard any day of the week and you'll find the stones marking the vaults. Stuyvesant sleeps not too far from the fourth Governor of the State of NY, Daniel D. Tompkins. Inquire in the Church's office about hours to visit the Sanctuary.
