From the movers and shakers of New York society, to corrupt political bosses and mafiosi, Jazz legends, and a Brooklyn native son who returned to Green-Wood Cemetery as one of the most famous artists of the 20th century, the stories of the permanent residents of these cemeteries are just as diverse and vibrant as the city itself.
To travel through the cemeteries of New York is to travel through the hidden history of what some consider to be the greatest city in the world.
