We take great pride in having the finest facilities in the Funeral Home industry. Located in the heart of Greenwich Village near transportation hubs, restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping, we ensure that your family and friends are provided with the best that Manhattan has to offer when they arrive at your loved-one’s service.
The building is a true landmark in Greenwich Village. Adorned with stained glass windows and a convenient awning, visitors feel reassured as they approach the main entry on Bleecker Street.
At night, the area is well lit with ornamental light fixtures located on the building’s stucco walls. Potted plants greet family and friends as they arrive at the main entrance.
The facility is designed like a luxurious Manhattan residence with high ceilings, fully restored prewar architecture, and maintained with impeccable cleanliness and care. Through the use of carefully selected colors, fabrics and furniture style, our furnishings were designed to soothe and calm the spirit.
Our main entrance and lobby area welcomes families and friends…

Our Selection Room houses a wide selection including caskets made of metal (steel, copper, bronze), wood (pine, poplar, oak, cherry, mahogany, and walnut), all of different styles, colors and interiors to suit your taste and your price range.
The establishment at 199 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village was built in 1926. It was without exception the finest and most complete and modern funeral home in New York City. It was not a converted townhouse, but a newly constructed building, architecturally designed as a funeral home. This was during a time when most wakes took place in the homes of the departed.
Since 1977, Peter DeLuca, the owner, has expanded immensely upon the proud and reputable tradition of the building. The facilities have been impeccably renovated, restored, and beautifully furnished.
