Re: THE FAMILY MAUSOLEUM IN SI

Hi Philip. The Moravian Cemetery in Staten Island has tours of the cemetery on Sundays in the Spring/Summer season. They are conducted by Richard Simpson. If you go into the Moravian website, you will see a category for tours and there you will find the schedule. Just to let you know, the big mausoleum is not on the tour and is still off limits to the public, but the original one is on the tour. If you don't make any of the tours but go to Moravian on your own, the original Vanderbilt Family mausoleum is to the left of the church. It is a vault with an obelisk on top. VANDERBILT is inscribed above the door and not so obvious unless you go right up to it.
