East Village

New York Marble Cemetery

41 1/2 Second Avenue

Easily confused with the New York *City* Marble Cemetery, which is around the corner and viewable from the street (see below). This cemetery can only be viewed by passing through these gates when they open to visitors on fourth Sundays, March through December, from 11 until 3. A nineteenth century secret garden.



New York City Marble Cemetery

2nd Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues

These gates are almost always locked, but I kind of like how undisturbed this place is. Last time I was here, I watched a lucky tomcat lounging in his private oasis.
