Time Out says

A set of gates north of the church on Broadway allows access to its cemetery, where cracked and faded tombstones mark the final resting places of dozens of past city dwellers, including signatories of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution like Alexander Hamilton (and his son and wife), who both died from wounds received during duels. The burial ground has been the final resting place for New Yorkers since 1697. The church is also home to the Trinity Church Museum, which displays an assortment of historic diaries, photographs, sermons and burial records. Walking the grounds is a very special experience and it's incredible trees and verdant grass contrast beautifully with the stone.
