Completed in 1766 as part of the Episcopal Parish of Trinity Church, this is “the oldest public building in continuous
use on Manhattan Island and the only remaining colonial church.”

Many historical events took place at this site. One being: George Washington’s walk to St. Paul’s after his inauguration in 1789. He attended Thanksgiving service here and returned for the next two years while NYC served as the nation’s capital. Within is the pew at which Washington regularly worshipped and is preserved to this day in its original form. Above this pew hangs the “earliest known representation of the Great Seal of the United States.”

Exhibits of prints, photographs, and documents are regularly displayed here. Recently I got to view “It Is Done”: The Inauguration of George Washington, April 30, 1789.

There are also concerts which take place at St. Paul’s Chapel and Trinity Church. Past performances have included pianists, cellists, flutists, sopranos and many more. There are small suggested donations.

Pass by and take a look. There are plenty of pamphlets inside which’ll serve as guides for you at this chapel and at Trinity Church. Please though, leave behind the mentioned price for such items, since it seems to be run on an honor basis.

 

Archived Item from the weeks immediately following September 11, 2001:

From Broadway looking west I caught sight of it from several angles and many of the trees on the north and south sides were fully intact. Although I couldn’t catch sight of the side facing the complex…I’ve heard someone say that it was these trees on the western side which must have acted as a buffer from the shock produced by the initial crashes and ultimate destruction of the WTC. Regardless, It is, my own opinion, one of our most important and symbolic historical sites in NYC if not the country.
