Visible within a sixty-mile radius on a clear night, Tribute has become a world-renowned icon of remembrance, honoring those who were lost, as well as those who worked so hard to get our city through that terrible trial.

St. Paul’s Chapel Commemorates 9-11 Anniversary

St. Paul’s Chapel, known as the "Little Chapel that Stood," stands directly across from the World Trade Center, and in the days and weeks following the terrorist attacks, was a sanctuary for relief workers to rest and pray. Millions of visitors continue to visit the site annually.

In prior years, at precisely 8:46 AM, when the first plane crashed into 1 WTC (North Tower), St. Paul’s, rings the Bell of Hope in a pattern of “four fives,” (five strikes, repeated four times), the traditional firefighters’ salute to the fallen. At the same time, the change-bells of Trinity Church will toll. There are additional varied activities throughout the day. Doors open at 8am. RSVP: https://www.trinitywallstreet.org
