First Calvary Cemetery reviews
A de facto park for the local residents interested in fitness and solitude. They are finally repaving and replacing water mains, so it will be better for running and biking soon. more »
First Calvary is a beautiful cemetery to visit, amazing to see so many headstones. I walked around for about an hour getting lost. If you're into cemeteries, This is one to see! more »
This is a nice cemetery! My only comment is that inside the Columbarium is not well maintained. So many dried leaves & tree branches are left there for how long?It looks dirty inside & not presentable! 11/2019
I want to thank Kevin who works in First Calvary for helping me find 2 grave sites today, you have the patience of a saint. I have many family members buried at Calvary and it is truly a beautiful, peaceful & scary cemetery, which makes visiting it more interesting. I’ve never been there alone, but I was determined to find the graves and take pictures of them before returning home to Westchester where I now reside. It wouldn’t have been possible, if it was not for Kevin’s determination in making my memories come to life after all these years. Growing up in Queens and visiting this cemetery with my family, believe it or not, was always a special day. We’d all look forward to hiding behind the huge headstones, being mesmerized by the huge mausoleums and looking at all the old pictures was the added touch for making great memories, YES at a cemetery. Happy I went today.
