Note that these instructions will likely be out of date once Trinity reopens following its major renovation
We will update this page once we receive updated tower entry instructions from Trinity.
On Sundays, access the tower via the main entrance to Trinity at the intersection of Broadway and Wall Street. The door that leads up to the ringing room is on the left hand side as you walk in, between two sets of double glass doors that lead into the main body of the church.
If the tower door is locked, please find one of the Trinity security guards, let them know you are a bell ringer, and ask them to unlock the door for you.
Please be quiet on the stairs as the choir may be singing in the gallery, and/or a sound engineer may be working in a booth next to the steps.
The main Broadway entrance to Trinity is usually locked by 7:00pm. Instead, go to the "Dungeon Door" entrance, which is on Trinity Place. This entrance is a small black metal door built into the high church wall, almost beneath the pedestrian footbridge that crosses Trinity Place.
Meet at the dungeon door 10 minutes before the scheduled practice start time. If you arrive after the practice has started, phone the ringing room on +1.646.216.6548 and someone will come down to let you in.
Our ringing room is at the top of 99 steps of a spiral staircase, and a short, angled ladder with railings. Unfortunately this means our tower is not wheelchair accessible, or to those who may not be in condition to climb the steps.
Visitors should be aware that there is no restroom in the ringing room or chamber below, and must descend the steps to use the facilities.
