Exploring DowntownManhattan's only pre-Revolutionary church building has a remarkable history stretching from George Washington's inauguration to the attack of September 11th. Built in the 1760s, on what was then the outskirts of town, St. Paul's originally served residents of the hinterland as a chapel of Wall Street's Trinity Church. Designed in the English Georgian style (named for King George the First, Second and Third), St. Paul's was one of dozens of churches throughout the British Empire modeled after St. Martin-in-the-Fields in London's Trafalgar Square.
