Andrew Torregrossa & Sons Inc. is the ONLY funeral home in NYC and the 5 boroughs ever to be recognized by New York Magazine’s “BEST OF NEW YORK” edition. 

Our 1305 79th Street location, nestled in the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn is recognized by many as one of the largest, most beautifully appointed and comforting funeral homes in all of New York City. Please click on any image for a larger view. 

The funeral home was built in the early 1940’s. The funeral home is immediately distinguished by the white stucco exterior, clay terracotta Spanish roof tiles, meticulously landscaped grounds, covered imported granite staircase entrance, and the American Flag perched high above, flying proudly over the funeral home and the street below. Another unique feature, which is immediately recognizable in our community, is the funeral home’s LED time and temperature display clock.

Entrance & Lower Lobby

Upon entering the funeral home, you will be greeted in the lower lobby reception area. The lower lobby, with two distinct seating areas, you will have the opportunity to gather yourself, take a moment to relax, or be courteously directed to your intended visitation chapel.


In the lower lobby, guests will be assisted with mass cards, service and donation details, religious articles, directions, or any other need we can accommodate. 


Upper Lobby

The architectural grandeur of the funeral home is immediately recognized as you enter the 10,000 square foot upper lobby and 5 visitation chapels. With 18 foot coffered ceilings, two tiered hand sculpted bronze chandeliers, imported Axminster rugs throughout, beautiful tapestries, oil paintings and custom upholstered furniture, the space is intended to comfort and help ease our families during a most difficult time.

Chapels & Visitation Rooms

The 5 interdenominational visitation chapels can be used for various religious and non-religious ceremonies. Each chapel is beautifully appointed with multiple seating options for family and guests, individually climate controlled, and can accommodate as small as 50 individuals for intimate needs or as large as 200+ individuals for larger gatherings. Visual equipment is available for personal video tribute presentations if requested. The funeral home is also Wi-Fi accessible.


Arrangement Rooms

The funeral home has 2 arrangement conference offices. Both offices are intimate spaces to privately discuss your needs and options with one of our caring and professional licensed funeral directors.


Selection Room

The selection showroom displays 20+ full size caskets, personalization options, multiple urn and burial vault options. The private showroom allows families to comfortably discuss their options and needs.


Underground Parking

The funeral home has multiple parking options when visiting the funeral home. Large onsite parking facilities accommodating up to 40 vehicles, an underground parking garage accommodating up to 15 vehicles, and valet parking upon request. We are the only funeral home in Brooklyn with an underground parking garage. The underground parking is accessible to the physically challenged and elderly guests. The spacious elevator will bring guests from the underground garage directly to the upper lobby and visitation chapels. The underground parking also alleviates any weather concerns for our families and their guests.
