The East Village’s Marble Cemeteries: A Tour of the New York Marble Cemetery and the New York City Marble Cemetery
Join Village Preservation for an afternoon celebrating the East Village’s two marble cemeteries, the New York Marble Cemetery and the New York City Marble Cemetery. Enjoy this rare opportunity to see both cemeteries on the same day and learn more about their pasts. Both cemeteries will provide garden talks about their respective and distinct histories while allowing visitors time to ask questions, explore, and just enjoy these traditionally private spaces.
Both cemeteries were founded in the early 1830s as non-sectarian cemeteries devoted to family plots and remained extremely popular places of internment throughout the nineteenth century. Both the New York Marble Cemetery and the New York City Marble Cemetery were individually landmarked in 1969.
