Cemetery notes and/or description:
NOTE: This cemetery is completely separate from the similar New York City Marble Cemetery on 2nd Street.

The New York Marble Cemetery, built in 1830 in the interior of the block bound by 2nd Avenue (where the entrance is), 2nd Street, 3rd Street, and the Bowery, is the oldest public non-sectarian cemetery in NYC. There are no burial markers or headstones, but there is a complete written register listing the 2,080 burials. Marble plaques giving the names of the purchasers of the 156 underground family vaults are on the surrounding walls. Half of these people were buried elsewhere.

Days when the Cemetery is open to visitors are posted on its website.
