We Will Tour Wood-lawn ! More Than a Cemetery is one of the largest cemeteries in New York City and a designated National Historic Landmark. . An oasis in an urban setting, more than 310,000 individuals are interred on its grounds. It attracts over 100,000 visitors from around the world each year. Recognized as one of America’s most historically significant properties, Described by the National Park Service as “a popular final resting place for the famous and powerful,” the cemetery is distinguished by memorials that “represent the largest and finest collection of funerary art in the country.” The Cemetery covers more than 400 acres and is the resting place for more than 300,000 people. Built on rolling hills, its tree-lined roads lead to some unique memorials. Woodlawn Cemetery became a très chic burial ground with elaborate mausoleums designed by world-renowned artists after its establishment in 1863, and is home to celebrated New Yorkers Robert Moses, Joseph Pulitzer, Duke Ellington, and Herman Melville. The Anna Bliss Titanic Victims Memorial at Woodlawn Cemetery is distinguished as the largest private monument for the disaster. Anna Bliss dedicated the monument to the victims in 1912 to commemorate those lost. Anna Bliss herself is also entombed there. A Wordsworth quotation is inscribed on the back of the monument reading, “Our souls have sight of that immortal sea which brought us hither.” .

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is an immortal novel about Long Island millionaires in the Roaring Twenties, inspired by actual parties Fitzgerald attended at the time. The Jazz Age mansions of Long Island’s “Gold Coast” certainly represent a bygone era, but you can still visit several of these Gatsby-esque architectural relics today.
