Woodlawn Cemetery

Even meager cemeteries can be lovely, each in their own way.  It's the peace of the places that sets the stage, I suppose.   Woodlawn Cemetery, located in The Bronx, is a downright beautiful cemetery.  Also chock full of notables, not the least of whom being J. P. Morgan.  The guy with bank.

My friend Mary Jane O'Malley takes some of the loveliest pictures in cemeteries.  Mostly Oakwood Cemetery here in Historic Troy.  This, I think, if one of my favorites ...
