START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – TRINITY CHURCH

Your next  stop  on your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New  York  City  is Trinity  Church .

The three  of  you  see One  World  Trade  Center  behind  the  church ,  even  though  it’s  not  really  that close .

The  graveyard  of the  church  is  the  final  resting  place  of Alexander  Hamilton ,  among  others .

The  building  that the three  of  you  are  looking  at  is actually  the  third  Trinity  Church .

The original  one  was built  in  1697 and destroyed  in 1776.

The present  church  was finally  completed  in 1846.

It’s  the  building  that’s  in front  of  you  now.

The two very  heavy  looking  front  doors  of the  church  are decorated  with  scenes  from  the  Bible .

Underneath  the scenes  are chapters  and verses  from  the Bible  that  the  stories  came  from .

You all  walk  inside  and look  at  the  chandelier  that’s  above  you in the  vestibule .

You can’t  believe  the details  that went  into  the  building  of  the  church .

One of  your  cousins  wants  to  visit  the  gravestones  of the  people  who  are  buried  here.

You and your  other cousin  really  don’t  want  to  do that.

You both  find it very disrepectful ,  no matter  what  famous  person  is buried  there.

As the three  of  you  leave  the  church ,  you see other tourists  doing what your  cousin

wanted  to  do.

Take pictures  of  the  gravestones .

You just don’t  get it.

This isn’t  the  place  to  do  that .
