Trinity Church @ Broadway and Wall
There have been three Trinity Church buildings at Broadway and Wall Street. The present Trinity Church, designed by Richard Upjohn and consecrated in 1846, is considered to be a classic example of Gothic Revival architecture and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The original burial ground (and only active cemetery in Manhattan) at Trinity Church includes the graves and memorials of many historic figures, including Alexander Hamilton, William Bradford, Robert Fulton, and Albert Gallatin.
I couldn't get over the amazing color of the new grass as I walked by the site a few days ago and the juxtaposition of old and new!
