Hello everyone! I'm a 3rd generation native New Yorker that loves the history of the Big Apple. My exclusive partnership with the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral has enabled me to share this very new and unique experience with you. I have been given the keys to the Kingdom so please join me on a journey through early New York history as we venture through the off limits areas of the church and then underground into the Catacombs beneath the Old Cathedral and what better way to do it than by candlelight!
