It was pretty cool. We learned a lot of the history, not just of the church, but also the history of the surrounding area, and NY in general. The tour guide was knowledgable and funny. Really good tour.

It was memorable, especially since my sister and niece shared it with me. And having lived nearby years ago and grown up with Scorcese’s filmic imprint of the church grounds, it was great to peak inside.

Dan was an awesome and knowledgeable guide. The structure itself is awesome, with some graves over 200 years old and the catacombs are eerily beautiful.
