Trashing NYC's founders
It's historic St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery.
Here's an old church bell in the courtyard...scrap metal thieves haven't figured out how to pilfer this one - yet.
Some lovely stained glass windows are on display.
Peter Stuyvesant is buried in a vault here, and from what we've read, he was a real bastard.
There are many graves in this churchyard, which has been bricked.
But what crime did this other poor guy commit to warrant the trashbag treatment?
