Allegheny Cemetery is very pretty and quiet on a nice day. One can walk from the cemetery along Butler street to shops/food in Lawrenceville. The cemetery is clean and very nice to walk around or even sit and read.

If you have a friend or relative here, it's pleasant and peaceful. I'm surprised it came up for a review solicitation but it's a cemetery... neighbors are quiet
