Geocache Description:

A cache in the heart of SoHo.   The sister cache of Vesuvio's Cache a few blocks away.  Great opportunity for a double cache day.

This cache is named for my cat Sammy and is a tribute to the extraordinary friendship, loyalty and unconditional love we receive from our pets.   I adopted Sammy, a beautiful and loving Red Point Siamese, three years ago from the Animal Control Center of New York.  He is a neighborhood resident, and will be sending you good caching vibes from our home a few blocks from the cache.      

The cache is located in Father Fagan Park, named for Father Richard Fagan, a friar and associate pastor of St. Anthony’s Church. St. Anthony’s, located at Sullivan and Houston Streets, is the first Italian church in New York, the Second Italian Church founded in the US, and the oldest existing Italian parish in the US.  It was established in 1866 to accommodate the Italian immigrant population in New York City.
In 1938, at the age of 27 Father Fagan died tragically and heroically in a fire at the Franciscan friary on Thompson Street, after saving two fellow St. Anthony's priests from the fire. 

When you find this cache, I hope you think of the heroes in your life, furry or otherwise.  They save us every day.


Please post a picture of your furry friend in the gallery. Thanks.
