THE place for New Yorkers to be buried in the post-Civil War years, it was an important destination for people both living and deceased. Combination botanic garden, structure garden, aviary (don't miss the parakets), architectural treasure - a beautiful resting place for loved ones, an expression of the ARTS for those of us still around.
Take a tour to understand better what you're seeing. Do not miss the chapel - a Neo Gothic confection designed by the same folks who brought us Grand Central Station.
Easy train ride from Manhattan (R train 25th St stop)
