This historic church in the heart of lower Manhattan was consecrated in 1846. It is also the home of St.Paul's Chapel, the “little chapel that stood” after September 11, which now serves as a congregation forpeace and reconciliation. The present day Trinity Church, designed by architect Richard Upjohn, isconsidered a classic example of Gothic Revival architecture and is designated a National HistoricLandmark for its architectural significance and place within the history of New York City. As with manyhistoric church buildings, Trinity has glorious acoustics for music but has had problems with speechintelligibility for many years.
