What we're about

This is not a "ghoulish" or ghost hunting group but is for people who are interested in the history and architecture of cemeteries in the 5 boroughs, Long Island, and the Hudson Valley. If members like, we could venture farther afield at some point.

I went to the Blaze in the Hudson Valley with another group a few years ago and it is amazing. Now, for those of us who live in the 5 boroughs, Nassau and Suffolk, there is another option. I think families with kids would really enjoy this but, as an adult, I think I would as well. Come See 5,000 Hand-Carved Illuminated Jack O'Lanterns This October in New York, Los Angeles and San Diego! ***All New for 2015!*** Lighting up the night this October in New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego is the most unique and iconic family friendly fall event, RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns! Come see more than 5,000 hand-carved illuminated jack o'lanterns created by professional artists and sculptors arranged in creative ways along a 1/3-mile scenic walking trail all set to an original music score produced exclusively for The RISE! The variety of new and exciting themes created for 2015 is sure to impress both RISE newbies and returning RISE fans. You'll go on safari and see larger-than-life animals carved from dozens of jack o'lanterns. Just watch out for our dragon that's over 50 feet long and contains hundreds of jacks carved by a team of artists! You'll visit the auto show and see some of your favorite classic cars re-imagined in a gourd-geous new way. You'll also see our talented artists hand-paint and hand-carve the images of some of your favorite TV and movie stars into giant 100 pound pumpkins at our live carving station! Our well lit parking lots and trail make The RISE experience safe and exciting for visitors of all ages. *RISE in NY in is Old Westbury Gardens. The site has many ticket dates. This is not a meet-up but I hope some of you take advantage of it. If it is anything like the Blaze, it should be great and (older) kids will love it!
