This is the second oldest church in New York. It was once the chapel on the Stuyvesant farm. Today it's an Episcopal church. The sanctuary is a bit bare and disappointing, but the graveyard is very interesting. There are many interesting tombs here, including Peter...More

We were delighted to attend Sunday services at this old church where Peter Stuyesant is buried. The congregation and preacher are committed, open, and intelligent, making this a church full of life. In addition, they house a dance company. What could be better?
