The cemetery is one of the most beautiful spots around. It's a great place to go to learn about the amazing people who are part of our New York City history. Check out a tour if you want to make the most of your visit.

If you're a fan of "Gangs of New York" then you'll be thrilled to learn that "Bill, the Butcher" is buried here...as is shown, I believe, at the end of the movie. Tons of American History right here.
