Trinity Church - NEW YORK CITY (NEW YORK)

(Reference: 9207)


Construction date 19th century
Authors UPJOHN, Richard
Description Gothic Revival style
Protection National Historic Landmark
Previous status The first church was lost in New York’s Great Fire of 1776 and the second was demolished in 1839, at Upjohn’s suggestion, after heavy snowfall revealed structural problems.
Current Status The present building is the third on the site, consecrated in 1846 and designed by British-born architect Richard Upjohn in the 19th century Gothic Revival style.
Bells The steeple’s 12 change-ringing bells are the only set in the United States; they rotate a full 360 degrees, producing a shimmering, cascading sound in a complex combination of changing tonal patterns. They can be heard on Sundays and special occasions.

"The bells are the gift of Dr. Martin Faulkes, a London ringer, and they remain the only 12-bell change-ringing installation in the United States. Indeed, Trinity is one of only two 12-bell change-ringing towers in North America (the other being St. James’s Cathedral in Toronto)." HENRY, David
