Trinity Lutheran Church was organized in 1664.

The congregation built a church in 1676 on the southwest corner of Broadway and Rector Street in Manhattan. There was a burial ground in the surrounding churchyard.

The church was rebuilt at the same site in 1729. It was destroyed by the Great Fire of New York in 1776.

The congregation continued to meet elsewhere after the Great Fire. The church was not rebuilt following the fire but the burial ground was in use until 1805 when the lot was sold to neighboring Trinity Episcopal Church.

The site is now occupied by the Empire Building at 71 Broadway.

Years of use: 1676 — 1805.

Cemetery disposition: Destroyed.

The burial remains are thought to have been removed although their final disposition remains uncertain.
