9. One of its Three Bronze Doors Depicts the History of New York City
Trinity Church’s three bronze doors were gifted to the parish by William Waldorf Astor, 1st Viscount Astor. Each was designed by a different architect Karl Bitter for the east door, J. Massey Rhind for the south door and Charles Henry Niehaus for the north door. The south door below eschews depictions of religion for the history of the city itself, showing in one panel the consecration of the first Trinity Church.
