I live right near Green-Wood Cemetery, which is enormous and beautiful, and a national historical landmark! I like to take walks there on clement days. There are, allegedly, many famous people interred there. I've only found one of the famous graves (John Matthews, "Soda Fountain King"). Like I said, it's a big cemetery. You can look up some of the famous... residents and find their plots, but I just take casual strolls. I think I've covered maybe .08% of the available grounds. Here are some pictures!

Mausoleum for cremated remains.
There's some life in the old girl yet.
