It’s huge. I drove around for an hour and stopped alongside to stroll a little. Very unique and peaceful place. Less crowded than the actual parks.

If you’re looking for lots of famous people buried here, this isn’t an exciting place to start. But it is a large (over 400 acres) cemetery, very pretty, with a lot of impressive headstones to see. A lot of walking paths, benches to sit on, and shade trees. Expansive view of the city, as it sits on a hill. There are also ponds and fountains. The entrance, two large gothic arches, is imposing and make for a beautiful photograph. Very peaceful. Lots of squirrels and birds to watch. There is a grand Civil War monument with poignant bronze relief scenes and statues. There is also a Minerva statue dedicated to liberty. Normally there are several trolley tours throughout the day, but they weren’t running when I went, due to COVID 19. This isn’t exactly a must-see on your NYC list, but is a great place to go for a walk, to see some neat gravesites. Some people even appeared to be on dates while I was here. Worth a look.

Excellent! It is quite a fascinating place. Our guide was interesting and informative. The weather was beautiful and I stayed touring the grounds for several hours after the end of the tour.
