One of Manhattan's Oldest Churches Offering Rare Crypt Space for 6, Just $7 Million

St. Patrick's Old Cathedral has a rare Lower Manhattan real estate offering in Little Italy, but you can only enjoy it when you are dead.

For the first time, the general public can use the crypt as a burial site. Prior to Monday, it had been reserved for church clergy and prominent families of the catholic church — dating back to the 1800s. Karen King recently paid $10,000 to store her late husband — Johnny Cha Cha –known as the mayor of Little Italy’s ashes there.

The last vault in the crypt will sell for $7 Million and can fit up to 6 bodies.
