We got slammed with a lot of snow in the NYC area (well, we were supposed to. Anything under a foot isn’t really slammed in my mind). I had been wanting to go take snow pics of the cemetery down at Trinity Church for awhile now. So, due to the snow and a rescheduled TV show shoot, I went downtown to run errands and see if I could go take some shots. Surprise surprise, they had shoveled the pathways in the cemetery but were NOT letting people into the area. Disappointing and frustrating. So I grabbed a bunch of images through the fence. Then proceeded to go inside the church for more photo ideas. This week is just the exterior of the church, complete with some cemetery images.
The building and grounds are located at 75 Broadway, south of WTC and just at the west end of Wall St. This is actually the third Trinity Church as the first two were either burned down or dismantled due to weather damage. It was finished in 1846 and is an Episcopal church. Notable internments in the Wall St cemetery (the church is also affiliated with two more cemeteries nowhere near the church’s location) include Alexander Hamilton, William Bradford, and Robert Fulton.
Next week: Inside Trinity Church and dealing with white balance and noise from lack of light.
