2. The Second Cemetery of Congregation Shearith Israel, Manhattan

Also called the “New Bowery Cemetery,” this cemetery, established in 1805, used to be much bigger. However, in 1830 West 11th street was extended reducing the cemetery’s size so that it is now just a small triangle that holds about 30 graves. The displaced plots were moved to the Third Cemetery of Congregation Shearith Israel (number 12 on this list). Twenty gravestones from the original second cemetery still stand.
