ForgottenTour #124, Sunday, October 29th, 12 noon, Uptown Trinity Cemetery
For FNY’s annual Halloween cemetery tour we’ll take a look at Uptown Trinity Cemetery, the Washington Heights counterpart of the Wall Street/Broadway burying ground. We’ll visit the final resting places of Clement Clark Moore, John Jacob Astor, John James Audubon and many more. Plus, I’ll have special looks at the gorgeous Hispanic Society Museum and Library and the magnificent Church of the Intercession. Meet at the SW corner of Broadway and West 155th Street, two blocks south of the 157th Street #1 train station.
