  1. St. Paul’s Chapel

    Completed in 1766, this church has a glorious Georgian interior lit by Waterford chandeliers. The pew where George Washington prayed after his inauguration as president has been preserved .

  2. City Hall

    Built in 1803–12, this Georgian building with French Renaissance influences is one of New York’s finest. The interior features a rotunda circled by 10 Corinthian columns, opening to twin spiral marble staircases .

  3. Trinity Church

    This lovely, square-towered church has bronze doors designed by Richard Morris Hunt. Built in 1839–46, the spire, once the tallest in Manhattan, is now dwarfed by Wall Street towers. Alexander Hamilton and Robert Fulton are buried here .

  4. St. Patrick’s Cathedral

    James Renwick, Jr. designed America’s largest Catholic cathedral (opened in 1879) in French Gothic style with twin 330-ft (100-m) towers. The interior has side altars dedicated to saints and holy figures, chapels, and stained-glass windows .

  5. Carnegie Hall

    Philanthropist Andrew Carnegie financed the city’s first great concert hall, built in 1891. Major renovation in 1996 restored the wonderful interior bronze balconies and ornamental plaster, and added a museum. Corridors are lined with memorabilia of the great artists who have performed here.

  6. Cathedral of St. John the Divine

    The world’s largest cathedral was begun in 1892 and is still a work in progress. The part-Romanesque, part-Gothic building is impressive for its stonework, enormous nave, bay altar windows, and rose window. The seat of New York’s Episcopal archdiocese, the church is the scene of many avant-garde musical and theatrical events .

  7. New York Stock Exchange

    Opened in 1903, the façade of this 17-story edifice is appropriately monumental for the building at the center of the U.S. economy. The figures on the pediment represent the “sources of American prosperity”. “Black Thursday,” the start of the Depression, began here in 1929 .

  8. U.S. Custom House

    One of the city’s best Neo-Classical buildings, this eight-story structure, built in 1907, features an elaborate mansard roof and fine sculptures, including four by Daniel Chester French. A 1927 nautical mural by Reginald Marsh adorns the huge, oval rotunda .

  9. New York Public Library

    This white marble, 1911 Beaux Arts edifice is magnificent inside and out. Imposing stairways, terraces, and fountains inspire awe; reading rooms invite repose. Events and talks are also held here.

  10. Grand Central Terminal

    This 1913 public facility is remarkable for its beauty; the main concourse is suffused with natural light and the vaulted ceiling is decorated with twinkling constellations .
