An Impromptu Shrine
Photograph by Brian Strauss

Built on the corner of Broadway (click right) and Fulton in 1766, St. Paul’s Chapel is Manhattan’s oldest public building in continuous use. During cleanup and recovery at ground zero, passersby turned the wrought-iron fence (click left) encircling the chapel into a makeshift memorial with teddy bears, flags, candles, and photographs of loved ones who lost their lives.
