We came to see this as part of a walking tour of the village and were impressed by the beauty of the church and the interesting history. It was amazing to see where Peter Stuyvesant is buried.

This Protestant Episcopal church on 2nd Ave between 10th & 11th St. stands on the site of the last Dutch Governor Peter Stuyvesant's private Dutch Reformed chapel (1799) and was attended by his descendants, many of whom lived nearby, for generation. His name is commemorated in numerous sites nearby, including Stuyvesant Square and the vast housing project named Stuyvesant Town.... More

This church is historic and well worth visiting for an hour, let alone attend services. Located in the East Village, the church has been involved in long, long periods of New York City history. This location is the resting place for Peter Stuyvesant, one of the famous leaders of Dutch New Amsterdam. This place was once part of Peter Stuyvesant's... 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?

Even though I'm not a member there (I live in Atlanta), I enjoyed visiting and learning about the important role this church has played in civil rights and improving their local community - for decades. The ghost tour app we had led us there, and it was a pleasant, peaceful space... except that it is rumored to be haunted by... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
