CATACOMBS BY CANDLELIGHT FAQS
This is an 90-minute deep dive into a story of early New York Immigration history told through the lens of the early Catholics. From the Gangs of New York to Fine Dining, Wine, and Music Culture everyone will find a connection point in this rich narrative of how New York was shaped. The Catacombs themselves are the largest example of underground galleries of tombs in the entire United States where very prominent Catholic Families and Clergy rest peacefully beneath the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral.
The Catacombs by Candlelight takes place at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Nolita/Little Italy. This Church was the original St. Patrick’s Cathedral but is NOT to be confused with St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown on 5th Avenue. Please DO NOT go to the Midtown Cathedral in error. Check-in at 266 Mulberry Street NY NY 10012
