2. St. Paul’s Chapel Cemetery

St. Paul’s Chapel, part of Trinity Parish located a few blocks north on Broadway holds the Parish’s second cemetery. This chapel built in 1766 was where George Washington attended services after being inaugurated as President at Federal Hall on Wall Street in 1789.

Many notable figures and prominent New Yorkers are also buried here, including George Eacker, who mortally wounded Philip Hamilton. The chapel, which has an entrance on Broadway facing east, has a steeple facing the main cemetery yard on the west, which once skirted the Hudson River. The Cemetery is now several blocks from the waterfront due to landfill and expansion.
