Financial District in Manhattan in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
100 Year-Old Sycamore
In 2005, renowned sculptor Steve Tobin worked with tree experts to preserve the original Sycamore stump that you see here at St. Paul's.
Tobin also created a monumental bronze memorial sculpture based on castings of the tree's roots. Called the "Trinity Root" in honor our mother church, it can be seen in the plaza of Trinity Church, located five blocks south at Broadway & Wall Street.
