The New York Marble Cemetery

 On a recent visit to new York I discovered The New York Marble Cemetery.
This small burial ground in Manhattan's East Village is sometimes called the Second Avenue Cemetery.  It is the oldest public non-sectarian cemetery in New York City.  Most of the 2,080 interments took place between 1830 and 1870; the last was in 1937.  All burials are in 156 below-ground vaults made of solid white Tuckahoe marble.  Although there are no gravestones, the names of the original owners are on plaques in the surrounding walls.  Their descendants may still be buried here.
