7. Its Cemetery is the Only Remaining Active Cemetery in Manhattan

There are three sites of Trinity Church’s cemetery: the Trinity Churchyard at Wall Street and Broadway, The Trinity Church Mausoleum and Cemetery on 155th Street, and the churchyard of St. Paul’s Chapel. They are the last active cemeteries left in Manhattan and are the burial grounds for many of New York’s historic figures. The Trinity Churchyard in particular houses the graves of Alexander Hamilton, steam engine pioneer Robert Fulton, and Albert Gallatin, the founder of New York University.
