Perkins Nichols, 1830

New York City's oldest Non-Sectarian Burial Ground was established in 1830 by wealth merchants. The beautiful half acre garden is surrounded by 12-foot Marble walls, and is the resting place of more than 2,100 interments in its underground vaults, each the size of small rooms. While there are no individual markers on the ground, the plaques on the walls name the vault family owners. The descendants of the owners can be buried here, and in the meantime, the site can be rented for events such as weddings and fund raisers.

Access Notes: Enter down a 100' alley to the interior of the block.
