An Episcopal Church located in Lower Manhattan at the intersection of Wall Street and Broadway, Trinity Church is one of the oldest churches in the United States. In 1696, a small group of Anglicans were granted approval from Governor Benjamin Fletcher to purchase land for a new church. The next year, Trinity Church received a charter from King William III of England. Today, the Trinity Church you see is the third building in the same location, built in 1846 in a Neo-Gothic style. Until 1890 when the New York World Building was completed, its 281-foot spire and cross was the highest point in the city. Along with the building’s impressive architecture -- including intricate stained-glass windows, sandstone facade, Gothic spires, dramatic pointed arches and heavy bronze doors depicting bible scenes -- Trinity is known for its vibrant music program and dedication to outreach. Visitors can attend service at 11:15am on Sunday, take in a live music choir concert, stroll through the lush green courtyard admiring trees as well as the Soldier’s Monument or tour the inside of the church. There is also a cemetery with many famous graves like Alexander Hamilton, Richarch Churcher and Charlotte Temple.
A really enjoyable day trip with a really informative guide (Bernice I think- apologies if that isnt her name) and Ron the driver. A good way of getting an insight to New York. Good value for money. Fantastic!!!
This was great fun we had a fantastic guide named Brooklyn Jim who knew everyone and everything about New York we all really enjoyed it
Highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was fantastic, knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and polite. This was my first time to NYC and this tour was a great way to see and learn about New York. The 9-11 Memorial was a place for all to see and the water taxi was fun and took us up to the Statue of Liberty to view. The walking part of the tour of Wall Street and area near the memorial was well worth the time.
Learned so much. Loved the trip. Thank you.
