New York City: Catacombs by Candlelight
- Gain access to off-limits areas with your guide
- Walk through the inside of the 150-year-old functioning Henry Erben pipe organ
- See the resting places of many high-profile Americans
See where bishops rest alongside noteworthy New Yorkers who have played defining roles in Catholic, New York, and American History. This labyrinth of vaults belongs largely to bankers, lawyers, captains of industry, merchants, political candidates, and even to a Civil War-era general. The Delmonico Family, General Thomas Eckert, and the first resident Bishop of New York are only a few of the many resting peacefully in the crypts beneath the nave of this historic landmark church.
