Another historic religious building for me! Built in 1766, St. Paul's Chapel is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan. It was one of a few structures in the area that didn't burn down during a massive fire in 1776 when a quarter of the city at the time burned to the ground. The church even has a cemetery that surrounds it as it sits on a full city block. It is a part of the National Historic Landmarks, so hopefully it's around for hundreds of more years to come!
