With its rickety headstones and old, crooked trees, the Gravesend Cemetery looks like something out of a Halloween horror movie, but it's actually an historic site that dates back to 1643, when English Quakers decided to turn the land given to them by the governor of New Amsterdam into the community's final resting place. Established by Lady Deborah Moody, Gravesend is near Coney Island and Bensonhurst, and it sits parallel to another famous memorial ground, the Van Sicklen Family Cemetery.
