Woodlawn Cemetery is one of the most Tranquil and Beautiful cemeteries that I have visited. My 2 sisters and I have been visiting Woodlawn Cemetery for over 20 years. We visited kour mother and grand mother 3 times a year. Now one of my sisters has joined them. I live in Maryland & my Little sister lives in the upper Bx. I will continue visiting my family until I can’t make it to NY.…

What a place to visit for history. Many important people have been buried here. Just not for being buried it's like looking in the pass.

It was a fun trip. You could get lost if you don't have a map so get one when you get in the main gate. Have fun finding the well know people that are there.

I felt honored to explore and celebrate the many lives that now hold homage here.…
