  • As he walked along Jamaica Avenue to the shopping I found this wonderful place nearly hidden between houses. It is worthwhile to go

  • Really. What can you say about a cemetary. I am at a loss for words. I guess it is a peaceful place at night.  more »

  • Some of the first generation Dutch founders of New York are buried here, way back before the Mayflower. Ogden is the surname, and they are my relatives. I can honestly say that besides Native Americans, my family were the first ones here (sans Viking settlements), well before the Mayflower. 1545 was when my 10th generation (I think) grandfather founded the Jamaica Queens area. When I discovered this I realized that while I may not be an original American (like the indigenous population although they migrated too) I am as OG NY'er as it gets!
  • Needs to be cleaned up again. Not well maintained.
