Trinity Church Cemetery isn't the end of the line, but a stirring intersection between past and present. Established in 1842, Manhattan's only active graveyard is one of New York State’s most important burying grounds, steeped in Revolutionary War, Civil War, civic- and social history. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, yet remains one of Gotham's best-kept secrets.
