St. Paul’s Chapel of Trinity Church Wall Street

The caption The corner of Broadway and Ann Street, shown here as it looked in 1831, would in the future be made famous by P.T. Barnum, still only an apprentice hoaxer. The American Museum he would acquire was now located in its new, five-story marble building (far left), opposite St. Paul’s Church. Later in the decade, the building at right would give way to the grand new Astor Hotel.

We call it St. Paul, four blocks north of Trinity @ 209 Broadway in New York. This Bell of Hope was gifted by mayor of London and the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2002.9.11. It rings annually on Sept. 11, in memory of the attack, of HOPE not tragedy.
