The New York Landmarks Conservancy is very pleased to offer its Professional Circle members an exclusive tour of Trinity Church Wall Street led by Jeff Murphy, FAIA and members of the design team. Trinity Church Wall Street is in the final stages of an almost two-year rejuvenation project to enhance the overall worship experience, make spaces accessible and welcoming, upgrade technology and infrastructure, and address deferred maintenance.
Trinity Church Wall Street has been an integral part of New York City for more than 300 years. In 1696, a small group of Anglicans petitioned the Royal Governor for a charter granting the church legal status. The charter was granted in 1697 and the first Trinity Church was erected at the head of Wall Street facing the Hudson River.
The third and current Trinity Church began construction in 1839 and was finished in 1846. Designed by Richard Upjohn, it is considered one of the first and finest examples of Neo-Gothic architecture in the United States. With a 281-foot high steeple, Trinity was the tallest building in New York City until 1890.
Space is limited, so please register early. We will maintain a waiting list of everyone else interested in participating and accommodate you as reservations change.
