Very interesting tour. Our tour guide, Kelly, had a wealth of knowledge and made the tour very entertaining. If you are interested in New York Citie's history, this could be a good alternative.

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,

A few...walk up a stairs to an organ in the church. Very much optional. Then a few small steps into the catacombs but nothing as high as a storey. Maybe 10 steps max.

No, you can just stroll right it. You can donate to light a candle though
