This Used to Be a Cemetery: A Walking Tour with Allison C. Meier

  • James J. Walker Park 8 Leroy Street New York City, NY 10013 United states (map)

Admission: $20

Most New Yorkers were once buried in Manhattan, but what happened to their graves? Now obliterated beneath parks, buildings, and expanded streets, these cemeteries often have little surviving physical evidence. This tour will explore their lost history, and unearth the overlooked ways in which these former sites of death still influence the city we know today.
