Picture Lower Manhattan: Trinity Churchyard


For more than three centuries, the Trinity Churchyard on Broadway at Wall Street has provided a gracious respite from the hubbub of Lower Manhattan.  The land first served as a town burial ground, then as the Trinity Church cemetery. It is the final resting place for such notables as  Alexander Hamilton,  the first U.S. Treasury Secretary, and Robert Fulton, who developed the first commercially successful steamboat. To this day,  it is a  place where  workers, residents and visitors in Lower Manhattan can pause for a quiet moment  on a busy day. (Photo by Brian DiFeo)
