Create an itinerary including Trinity Church
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.

  • We came here to look around the cemetery of famous people only to find it’s currently closed for renovations. You can see Alexander Hamilton’s tombstone from Rector Street. (Large pyramid shape).

  • basment has jesus pieces 10/10
  • Only open for visits to churchgoers on Sunday which means you are also not able to walk the grounds immediately surrounding the historic church except for Sundays. Worth visiting any day of the week. The exterior reliefs, stained glass and view of the grounds through the wrought iron fence is worth the effort.
