Highly informative 90 minutes, recommended to anyone interested in early american history

The catacombs tour was great, the historic architecture and styling was amazing. However, the best part was learning the history of religion and churches as it relates to NYC and Europe while you are walking around one of the oldest structures in NYC. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in American history, old architecture or religious history, it's fascinating!

It was a very hot day we were required to wear our masks and it was just a little to much in the hot sun out side in the graveyard
