The Cemetery is in the East Village, just east of Greenwich Village and north of the Lower East Side.  Find parking on the side streets or at the Central Parking Garage, 11 East 1st Street.  The closest subway stops are the F and V trains at Lower East Side / Second Avenue and the # 6 train at Bleecker & Lafayette.  The Cemetery's gate is on Second Avenue, back at the building line - don't walk past!   Our next-door neighbor, Provenzano-Lanza, 43 Second Avenue, has a prominent tan awning over its sidewalk.  Please look for that.

Please bear in mind that the Cemetery's entrance is on Second Avenue, not on East 2nd Street.
