New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
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.
