The New York Marble Cemetery (NYMC) is privately owned and managed by its Trustees. As a New York City Landmark and not-for-profit 501 (c) 13 corporation, we are empowered to rent our half-acre walled garden for small private events.
The most frequent events we host are weddings, fashion shows, corporate product launches and TV / movie / magazine photo shoots.
Past events have included fund-raisers, family reunions, birthday picnics, Shakespeare plays, poetry readings, art shows, farmers markets, treasure hunts and memorial services.
All events must be respectful and appropriate for a fragile and sacred historic site. We never rent the garden for Halloween or similar dark-themed events.
We give you the keys to the garden and you do the rest.
No hourly rentals: Only one client per day, at full price.
