Details

Built in the 1760`s, St. Paul`s Chapel is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan. George Washington, with members of the newly formed U.S. Congress, worshiped here on his Inauguration Day, April 30, 1789. After the attack on September 11, 2001, the chapel served as a place of rest, refuge and recovery at the World Trade Center site. The fence around the church became the main spot for visitors to place memorials to the tragic event. The chapel is open to the public and offers a variety of visitor experiences.
