“Neo-Gothic Church that withstood 9/11 with little damage”

Trinity Wall Street is an Episcopal parish that has been a part of New York City since 1697. Located on Broadway at the head of Wall Street, Trinity stands as a symbol of spiritual values in the midst of downtown’s thriving financial district and residential community. It 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. After the Revolutionary War, Trinity helped form the Episcopal Church of America. The current building is the third on the site and was consecrated in 1846.  A number of Episcopal churches in New York were founded originally as Trinity chapels before becoming independent. St. Paul’s Chapel, at Broadway and Fulton Street, remains part of the parish today. Built in 1766, 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.

Few things in life have ever moved me as much as this little chapel did.... the old pews with the deep scratch marks caused by the equipment of the firemen as they collapsed to rest... the letters from people searching from loved ones... if you are visiting NYC, definitely take 10 minutes and stop in, you will never ever forget this special place.
