This cemetery is a 65-acre cemetery right off of Queens Blvd. If we decide to explore this cemetery, it would probably be easiest to meet at the Queens Blvd entrance. This is a gem of a cemetery, on the National Register of Historic Places. It has a beautiful fountain on the grounds (full of ducks, geese and turtles!) and "story stones" sprinkled throughout the cemetery telling the history of those buried there and of the borough itself. Jacob Riis' wife is one of the well-known people who are buried in Maple Grove.
Let me know what you think. Saturday or Sunday and if you would like Maple Grove as a destination.
