People who remember the exterior of Trinity Church Wall Street in the 1980s, and earlier, recall walls black with soot, a consequence of the 1846 building having stood through New York City's experience of the Industrial Revolution. Now, as Trinity rejuvenates the nave of the church, there are discoveries that reveal how the outside walls looked more than a half-century ago, long before the more recent 1990 "power-washing" turned the black into the original color.Read more

However, much has already happened in the early weeks of rejuvenation, as Trinity Vicar Phil Jackson explained, and demonstrated, in this June 24th tour.
