New York's oldest surviving building, Saint Paul's Chapel was built in 1764. It has a Neoclassical fašade topped by a spire, inspired by Saint-Martin-in-the-Fields in London, albeit using the local New York brownstone as building material. This style of churches was popular in New England at the time. The interior of the church is very Georgian, with Corinthian columns and a barrel vaulted ceiling. Saint Paul's Chapel is separated from the World Trade Center site by a cemetery, yet the church was miraculously untouched during the collapse of the twin towers.
