Trinity Church

A standout building in an impressive area, this church is filled with art and relics and is the final resting place of many prominent Americans.

In the heart of the Financial District, Trinity Church has a gothic appearance that makes it seem as if it should be on Oxford University’s campus rather than in the epicenter of American finance. The unique beauty of this church is what makes it a special surprise for anyone visiting lower Manhattan. As you approach from Wall Street, admire the tall spires and long, stained-glass windows.

The Trinity Church that stands today is the third iteration of a church on the 75 Broadway property. Completed in 1846, it is often cited as a classic example of the Gothic revival style of architecture. Its spindly finials, lancet windows and elaborate patterning make for a breathtaking aesthetic experience.

Look over the huge bronze doors then tour the halls of the interior. Appreciate the beauty of statues and other religious artworks and look up to find grand wooden archways. Visit the church’s small museum which displays a number of historical documents and old photographs. See a service in the glowing halls of this serene setting.

Outside of the church is Trinity Churchyard, a cemetery filled with more historic names than a textbook. American founding father Alexander Hamilton, inventor Robert Fulton and polymath Albert Gallatin are all buried here. So are naturalist John James Audubon and America’s first multi-millionaire, John Jacob Astor. Tour the graves of these illustrious figures and spend time wandering through this small patch of green in an otherwise gray part of town.

If you are here during the fall or spring, visit the church for the free weekly music concerts, covering such genres as classical and jazz. For times and details of performances, go to the church’s official website.

Admission to Trinity Church is free. To get here, take the subway to Wall Street or Rector Street. The church is just a block away from these subway stops. When you finish seeing the church, find time to go to the Museum of American Finance or the Skyscraper Museum, both less than three blocks away.
