St Mark's in the Bowery information
Though it’s most popular with East Village locals for its cultural offerings – such as poetry readings hosted by the Poetry Project or cutting-edge dance performances from Danspace and the Ontological Hysteric Theater – this is also a historic site. This Episcopal church stands on the site of the farm, or bouwerij , owned by Dutch Governor Peter Stuyvesant, whose crypt lies under the grounds.
