We take great pride in having the finest facilities in the Funeral Home industry.
In 1926, G.B. Perazzo erected an establishment at 199 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village called the G.B. Perazzo Funeral Church. 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 then, Peter DeLuca has expanded immensely upon the proud and reputable tradition of the Perazzo family. The facilities have been impeccably renovated, restored, and beautifully furnished.
Greenwich Village Funeral Home 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 foyer welcomes families and friends…
We have a vast selection of specially designed background music, even subtle aromatherapy to help relax you and your guests. Truly a state of the art facility.
The Funeral Home is a true landmark on Bleecker street and in Greenwich Village. Adorned with stained glass windows and a convenient awning, visitors feel reassured as they approach the main entry.
At night, the area is well lit with ornamental light fixtures located on the building’s stucco walls.
We have a large selection of caskets for you to view on our premises. 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.
