New York City, Lower Manhattan, Church St.

Source : Wikipédia


Church Street is a short but heavily travelled north/south street in Lower Manhattan in New York City. It runs along the eastern edge of the site of the World Trade Center destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Its southern end is at Trinity Place, of which it is a continuation. Its northern end is at Canal Street, but a few blocks before Canal Street it connects to the southern end of Sixth Avenue. Trinity Place, Church Street and Sixth Avenue form a continuous four-lane through route from Lower Manhattan to Central Park. The Eighth Avenue subway line runs below Church Street from Liberty Street to Sixth Avenue.


The Church Street Station post office at 90 Church Street served the World Trade Center's 10048 ZIP code as well as the surrounding area, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as is the Canal Street Station post office at the north end of Church Street. Other notable buildings include the rear of the 1765 St. Paul's Chapel, the residential tower under construction at 99 Church Street, and St. Peter's Church.
