Located at the end of Wall Street in Lower Manhattan, Trinity Church is an Episcopal church, with its main entrance on Broadway.
The current church is actually the third church building. The first one was built in 1698, and got destroyed by the Great New York Fire of 1776. Then came the second one, in 1790. But that one had some structure issues, and got demolished in 1839. Then came the current one, which opened in 1846. And that is the one you enter.
The church is free to enter. Starting with the bronze doors, which has scenes from the Bible, on them. Inside, some things to check out, include the baptistry and the All Saints' Chapel. And some of the memorials. While okay to see, nothing really special that truly stands out.
There is a cemetery, where you can find the burial sites of Alexander Hamilton (very first Secretary of the Treasury) and Robert Fulton (developer of very first steamboat). And others that most have never heard of, from the 18th and 19th century. This is worth seeing, when visiting this site.
A small church, it can be seen very quickly. Worth a quick look if already in the area, and to see the cemetery and a place to find some peace and quiet. And if it is along the way, as it is close to the 9/11 sites and Federal Hall.
But definitely not worth going out of your way to just see this.
