History and Attractions

Lower Manhattan, where the Trinity Institute is held at Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel, is an area of New York City rich with history. It’s also the location of the Financial District and 9/11 Memorial and Museum, and many local sights and attractions are free to visit.

If you’d like to prepare before you arrive, you can find information on attractions in Lower Manhattan, as well as maps and information on local restaurants, at downtownny.com.

Here are just a few points of interest within walking distance of Trinity Church:

  • 9/11 Memorial and Museum - An outdoor memorial park and a museum commemorating the World Trade Center towers that were destroyed on September 11, 2001. The memorial park is free. Tickets for the museum are required, and we recommend you purchase them online in advance.
  • African Burial Ground National Monument – A sacred space in Lower Manhattan where both free and enslaved Africans were buried in the 17th and 18th centuries. Located at 290 Broadway, close to Foley Square and north of City Hall, the museum is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday.
