Trinity Church is located at the intersection of Broadway and Wall Street in downtown Manhattan. The burial grounds have been the final resting place for many historic figures since the Churchyard cemetery opened in 1697. A non-denominational cemetery, it is listed in the United States National Register of Historic Places and is the only remaining active cemetery in Manhattan.

  2. So special place. I like those B&W photos. When visiting churches I always make a visit to the cemeteries also. This one is looking so old, so lovely.
