The Basics

Built in 1766, St. Paul’s Chapel was modeled on St. Martin in the Fields in Trafalgar Square, London and is one of the finest examples of Late Georgian architecture in the US. The building has been the site of many historic events in its 250-year history. George Washington himself used to worship here—the pew he sat in is marked with a painting of the seal of the United States—and several important figures, including Revolutionary War hero Major General Richard Montgomery, are buried in the churchyard.

The church also has an active community and offers a full program of services for congregants as well as regular concerts. See the chapel on a tour of Lower Manhattan along with the 9/11 Memorial or the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Visit the 9/11 Memorial

For New Yorkers, the 9/11 Memorial—dedicated to the office workers and rescue teams who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001—is a sacred space. The names of those who died are engraved around two water features that mark the sites of the Twin Towers. Spend some time reflecting on the events of that momentous day, and visit the on-site museum that documents the tragedy and examines its wider implications.
