New York's Trinity Church, an Episcopal church located on Broadway at the head of Wall Street, is a visible landmark on the city's skyline. After two others on the site, the grand new one was designed by Richard Upjohn and begun in 1839 and completed in 1846. Its 281-foot Neo-Gothic spire and gilded cross was the highest point in New York for most of the nineteenth century.
