What makes you especially interested in cemteries? Photography? Famous people? History? All of the above. Or just walking in a peaceful place?

As a young child, my Mom would take my siblings and me on outings to the Vanderbilt family cemetery located on Staten Island. (It was such a beautiful place back in the day before the vandalism....now it is, very sadly, closed to the public.) I was fascinated by the grandeur, peace and tranquility of the site. Since then, I have become very interested in the Vanderbilt family history. I love taking pictures of interesting, strange, and often funny mausoleums and headstones. More recently, I have enjoyed visits to Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn discovering and finding the resting places of the famous and interesting.

Introduction

Hi, I am a native New Yorker living in Manhattan. I am retired with lots of time and energy to explore. I would love to meet people with the same passion for visiting cemeteries.
