"Beautiful, old buildings"

Trinity Place is a stretch of Church Street that marks Trinity Church and the blocks surrounding it. It starts off at Liberty Plaza which used to be really ugly but has been redone since 9/11 and is a nice little walk now. It has a few sculptures and some trees. I'm not saying it's the highlight of anyone's New York walking experience, but it's definitely a vast improvement from what it looked like a few years ago.
The block at Cedar has a really cool gothic building that's used for a Realty firm. So, I guess what I'm saying is that the only cool thing about the building is the actual building. There's a catwalk that connects the two structures and it looks scary as hell to walk across which adds to the gothic feel, in my opinion. Across the street, there's a high school and a stock exchange building. I think most of the high schools downtown are in the weirdest spots. It's just awfully busy and unattractive for a block to send your kid every day.
The next block down, you get to the namesake of the street. The Trinity Churchyard starts here and it is really cool. It's a burial ground started in the late 17th century. The gravestones are old, nubs and the feel is really eerie but awesome. Residents of the graveyard include many Revolutionary patriots and people like Robert Fulton. As far as cemeteries go, this is one of the prettiest. The actual Church has been here since the late 17th century but the structure has been replaced a couple of times due to fire, etc. The current church building is from the mid-19th century but it looks much older and it is really beautiful. I mean, this church is stunning and I highly recommend every one go in and take a look. The south side of the church has more cemetery and Alexander Hamilton is buried on this side. I can't say better things about this church as far as creep factor, history and beautiful architecture go. It's marvelous.
The block south of the church is a rarity as far as the Fidi goes because it's all older buildings (i.e. no skyscrapers). It's a really cool looking block and houses one of the oldest rowhouses in the Fidi. 67 is a really massive rowhouse from the early 19th century. I can't imagine living in a house this big. It's 4 stories tall and quite the sight. If you're already visiting the church, I would take a look at this guy.
If you can find a spot to live on Trinity and don't mind living in the Fidi, I would say to look here. The buildings have a lot more character than most other streets in this neighborhood, and you feel like you're in old New York when you're on this street. If there weren't so many people here during the day and nothing to do at night, I would totally live on Trinity.
