When first built, Trinity Church with its soaring Neo-Gothic spire and surmounted by a gilded cross, dominated the skyline of lower Manhattan.
The frame is 14 x 18, the mat will be white, the image is 11 x 14 inches.
It was a welcoming beacon for ships sailing into New York Harbor. Though skyscrapers have risen all around it, Trinity Wall Street still stands as a significant statement of spiritual values in the heart of downtown Manhattan and serves as is 14 x a center for contemplation, worship, and Christian community.
When you look West down Wall Street your view ends at Trinity Church - now about 175 years old!
There have been three Trinity Church buildings at Broadway and Wall Street. The present Trinity Church, designed by Richard Upjohn and consecrated in 1846, is considered a classic example of Gothic Revival architecture and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Since its founding by charter of King William III of England in 1697, the Parish of Trinity Church has played a pivotal role in the religious life of this city and nation.
Our photographer, employee of Wall Street Gifts, took this picture which shows Trinity Church and street signs.
From Wikipedia: In 1696, Governor Benjamin Fletcher approved the purchase of land in Lower Manhattan by the Church of England community for construction of a new church. The parish received its charter from King William III on May 6, 1697. Its land grant specified an annual rent of sixty bushels of wheat. The first rector was William Vesey (for whom nearby Vesey Street is named) who served for 49 years until his death in 1746.
Vesey is MY grandfather many generations ago!
