St. Paul's Chapel
FINANCIAL DISTRICT. Under the proprietorship of Trinity Church, St. Paul’s is the oldest church on Manhattan Island. This beautiful Georgian structure, dating from the 1760s, is a proud reminder of New York’s past and stands in stark contrast to the modern office buildings and skyscrapers surrounding it. Inside the chapel, little has changed over the past few hundred years, including George Washington’s pew and the original Waterford chandeliers. On Mondays from noon to 1pm, the chapel hosts classical music programs. “Unwavering Spirit” is an interactive exhibit that chronicles the role the church played after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. Trivia fact: St. Paul’s Chapel was constructed using stones quarried in Manhattan.
