TommysNewYork provides a 1.5 hour catacomb tour that is very educational and worth while - especially for Catholics with a bit of background. Much NY history explored!

I was impressed by this charming old structure down by Little Italy. The building is historic for being the original cathedral of NYC. It is worth checking out if you are downtown.

This is an astounding oasis of peace and tranquility in the busy centre of the city. I can only recommend that you take the time to visit and you might even visit Trump tower which is nearby (only joking)
