Today we have a new P/P post, featuring prints of Wall Street in New York. They both offer a view of Trinity Church. The historic church has been located at the intersection of Broadway and Wall Street in lower Manhattan for centuries. The first incarnation of the church, originally built in 1698, burned down in a fire in the American Revolution. The second Trinity Church was built in 1790 and torn down in 1839, due to structural damage after snow and ice storms. The third Trinity Church was completed in 1846, and at the time of its completion, its spire was the highest point in New York.
