Listed in the National Register of historic places, the Trinity Cemetery sits above the Hudson River on upper Riverside Drive. The burial ground was the site of the ill-fated Battle of Fort Washington during the Revolutionary War, and is also the final resting place of many luminaries, including Ralph Ellison, Jerry Orbach, and Ed Koch. Go on Christmas Eve for a candlelight reading of "A Visit From St. Nicholas" (also known as "The Night Before Christmas") by the grave of its author, Clement Clarke Moore.
