lovely atmospheric church that holds a lot of distant and more recent history. Had to visit on a revolutionary walking tour but was a delight to find it modelled after one of my favourite London churches! Lots to see here - worth a visit

I first visited this church after 9/11. It has changed a great deal. It used to have a lot of memorabilia from EMS workers and volunteers from the 9/11 tragedy. Most of this memorabilia, and fair enough, has likely gone to the museum. It still...More

Worth a visit. Lots of history. This little church played a big part in the tragedy of 9/11. Very humbling experience.

We went to St. Paul's expecting to see it like it was when we went there several years ago, after 9/11, but everything has changed. It is currently being renovated, so there were no pews inside...just a few folding chairs set up. All the tributes...More

St. Paul's Chapel is a lovely house of worship with a rich history, but its significance grew following the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. "The little chapel that stood" is a must-see.
