Trinity Church Cemetery

The only active burial ground in Manhattan, Trinity Church Cemetery & Mausoleum, founded in 1942, occupies the former site of John James Audubon’s estate in the Washington Heights neighborhood as part of the Trinity Church Wall Street real estate complex. It is the final resting place of many of New York City’s most influential citizens, including Audubon himself, America’s first multimillionaire John Jacob Astor, and acclaimed writer Ralph Ellison. Archigrafika designed and seamlessly integrated environmental signage, banners and wayfinding posts throughout the hilly terrain with sensitivity to the cemetery’s aesthetic and the historic and architectural context of Trinity Church Wall Street, creating an attractive and convenient guided experience for visitors.
