This cemetery accepted burials from 1829 to 1851 although by 1851 it was illegal to bury here and relatives had to pay fines. It's now trapped between taller uninteresting buildings but it remains...a little oasis in the city.

The photo was taken at twilight and doesn't show the white flowers on the tree to their best advantage. This was from last week but I noticed last night that the flowers are gone.

  1. I love seeing all these intimate views of New York!

  2. There are lots of nooks and crannies in NYC!
