St. Paul's Chapel

St. Paul's chapel in New York has a remarkable history. It was more or less the only public building in NYC that survived the Revolution intact. George Washington worshipped there. It survived the 9/11 attacks almost unscathed even though the towers collapsed almost right across the street and a lot of the church's trees and gravestones were destroyed. For months after the disaster the church was a staging area for ground zero workers.

One thing that was damaged, though, was the church's organ.

Well, now it has been restored.
