Lifestyles and Denominations

Offering dignified cremation and funeral services to every imaginable lifestyle and denomination.

There is no greater or profound example of eclectic families, beliefs, faiths, or ethnicity than the borough of Manhattan.

“As someone who is proud to belong to the LGBTQIA community, I am honored to serve at a funeral home which supports and respects individuals and families of all sexual orientations and identities. Acceptance and affirmation are the hallmarks of everything we do here at Perazzo Funeral Home. Day in and day out, we strive to ensure that all feel comfortable here.

In striving to maintain this ideal, our entire staff extends their hands and open hearts to the incredible wide array of communities across New York City and the Greater Metropolitan New York region.

I truly believe that embracing diversity continues to be our greatest strength and key to honoring ALL lives.”

Gregory Zannitto, Funeral Director

Providing services for the LGBTQIA community

No other neighborhood in New York City can attest to the foremost acceptance and equality to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender/transexual, queer/questioning, intersex, and allied/asexual/aromantic/agender community than Greenwich Village.  With tremendous success in the summer of 2011 that brought our state the legalization of gay marriage, we can further assist couples that seek compassion, respect, and most importantly, attention to their wishes.  Our funeral directors are experienced in understanding and graciously accommodating the needs of all relationships.  As the profound history of Greenwich Village continues to evolve, our funeral home will proudly carry on its decades-long service to gay, lesbian and transgender individuals and their families.

Decades of experience to nearly every imaginable lifestyle and accepted denomination has elevated Perazzo and its staff of licensed directors to a level of service beyond most expectations.

Although located in Greenwich Village, dedication to honoring each individual or family’s wish has encouraged our base of service to expand beyond the perimeter of our neighborhood.

Today, our services are being provided in all areas of the metropolitan community and tailored to meet personalized and specific requests.

"They made our family and friends feel at home and cared for us more than anyone expected. Their staff took photos of all the flowers and the gift cards so I could know what I was thanking people for. This was a great help. Everyone was very courteous and professional, but also compassionate."

Benedict R.

"They reached out to the recommended florist to ensure I received excellent service. They handled every detail with class, style and understanding. This is an amazing organization that did everything perfectly and helped me significantly at a very difficult time."
