This cemetery, just across the street from my apartment, is one of my favorite places to visit in all of NYC. Full of history and oh so beautiful in its decay.

In 1842 Trinity Parish purchased part of the Audubon estate. This newly purchased area (24 acres) extended from 153rd to 155th Streets and from Amsterdam Avenue to Riverside Drive. As time passed, Broadway was extended northward. The cemetery was forced to exhume graves and relocate them toward the Hudson River to make way for the newly expanded boulevard. The cemetery as we know it today is now divided into two divisions. The western division contains a majority of the older grave sites and mausoleums dating from 1843. The eastern division has more recent mausoleums and graves.

Former NYC Mayor Ed Koch announed today that he purchased a plot in the Trinity Cemetery, which is non-denominational - 4/22/08.
