This is a review of the Trinity Church graveyard in the Financial District rather than the Trinity Church Cemetary and Mausoleum in Harlem. Trinity Church is a historically important church in New York City originally built in 1697. The current church is the third version and was completed in 1846. Many famous figures were members of the congregation, most famously Alexander Hamilton. His gravesite can be easily spotted off of Rector St. Other famous individuals resting in the graveyard include Robert Fulton inventor of the steamboat, Albert Gallatin, Lord Stirling and Horatio Gates.

Old cemetery located next to the Trinity Church. Lots of old religious clerks and people from New York buried here. Ideal to scroll for a few minutes

It is clear from the reviews that people are confusing this place at 770 Riverside Dr, Harlem, with the enty for Trinity Church on Broadway and Wall Street.

My friends and I went here and it was a neat experience. Alexander Hamilton and Eliza were burried here which I didn't know until I got there, so neat surprise with that.

Both Alexander and Eliza are resting peacefully in the cemetary on the southside of the Trinity Church. There's a little construction that's ongoing so we had to enter the southside off the westside entrance to the church. Despite this inconvenience, our trip was well worth it. Eliza's tombstone is wholly unimpressive whereas her husband's is quite nice.

Nestled next to a lovely church is this charming cemetery that now sees quite a few visitors due to the success of the Hamilton Broadway show. As a fan of the show and history in general there was a satisfying amount of enjoyment to be had from seeing these important historical figures memorialized here, with Hamilton himself holding sentimental value due to his burial right next to the financial structures he helped to construct. Most of the important figures here relate to Hamilton and his story in some way so I do wonder how important this would be for the average tourist but Hamilton was a key figure in the American Revolution so for a quick stop amongst quite a few other tourist spots, it should be an easy choice to come.

The Trinity Church Cemetery is the resting place of many who were alive around the time of the American Revolution. It has become increasingly popular after the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, as it is where Alexander Hamilton and wife Eliza are buried. It is also home to many others also made famous by the musical such as Angelica Schuyler Church, Philip Hamilton, Hercules Mulligan, Richard Montgomery. It is also the final resting place to other notable people in history such as Robert Fulton (inventor of the steamboat), the Astor family, author Ralph Waldo Ellison, ornithologist John James Audubon, and many others. The oldest carved gravestone in New York City is located in the cemetery, belonging to Richard Churcher, a child who died in 1681.

Trinity Church and its grounds are free to visit and an important part of history.

Our first time in NY and never heard about the church or its history before, and its these types of places that make NY so precious. We were simply meandering our way from Battery Park when we found this significant piece of history. So much of lower Manhattan seems to be sacred and protected public spaces and I was literally astonished to stumble upon this treasure. There are many famous people resting here, but finding Alexander Hamilton made my day. Church itself was under major renovations when we visited, and sorry I didnt look to see when it will reopen, but just walking the grounds and cemeteries was wonderful.

This small but charming churchyard is like an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city. It is always interesting to me to visit historical cemeteries as you are surrounded by history. I love to wander through looking at the names and dates and the history of the "residents" as it gives you a window to that time.

Walking through Wall Street, I was surprised to discover a beautiful church and cemetery! Trinity church cemetery is a wonderful oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle. 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. Highly recommend!
