Didn’t like at all. First 1,5 hours speaking about NY catholic history is not what we were looking for… then the last 15’ minutes in the catacombs that indeed are a brand renewed cementerry underground. Unfortunately the candlelight didn’t hide all the tables and working material kept there as if it were invisible… we left before it finished.

The history of the Cathedral and the Catacombs, given by our tour guide named Dan, made this tour one of our best NY experiences. From the gravestones to the brick walls to the stained glass windows to the walls of the Cathedral and Catacombs and beyond—everything was explained in detail. The rich experience provided a greater understanding of a piece of NY history.
