In the heart of Green-Wood, a simple, iron gate leads into an underground structure few people ever see. Rarely open to the public, the Catacombs – built in the 1850s – are one of the cemetery’s most unknown spaces. They offered 19th-century New Yorkers an above-ground burial option, which proved to be very popular for those who feared being buried alive.
In the 21st-century, musicians love the unmatched acoustic quality of this unique studio of stone. Join Atlas Obscura and Green-Wood for the premiere of a series of curated concerts featuring artists specially selected to perform in this coveted setting. Without question, this will be New York City’s most unique musical experience.
