1. Opera and Chamber Concert
Starting from tonight, August McKay Lodge and her band Voyage Sonique will be gracing everyones ears with their beautiful, haunting and mesmerizing classical music.

2. Twilight Tour @ Green-Wood Cemetery
Twilight is arguably one of the best parts of the day, that spectacular glow that fills the sky as the sun sets is truly amazing. However, have you ever walked through a cemetery around that time of the evening? Probably not, right? Book your ticket for a walking tour around some graves of prominent figures in NYC and American history, as well as a rare look inside the Catacombs…
Date: Starting from July 5th, every Fri & Sat
Time: 7:30pm – 9:30pm
3. Full Moon Tour @ Green-Wood Cemetery.
Pretty much the exact same itinerary as the plan above, except this time it gets even spookier since it’ll be under the full moon light… only for the real ones out there. Think you’re brave enough?
Date: August 16th
Time: 8pm – 10pm
4. Catacombs by Candlelight Tour @ St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral
Curious about what’s inside one of the only existing catacombs in the US? The Basilica recently decided to finally open up the underground crypt to the public, so make sure you take advantage of being able to see one of the biggest collections of the tombs in the country. Get your tickets here.
