1. Revolutionary War Cemetery, Brooklyn

With only two interments left, the Revolutionary War Cemetery (also called the Barkaloo Cemetery) in Bay Ridge, is the smallest cemetery in Brooklyn. The plot of land was purchased in 1725 by Dutch immigrant William Harmans Barkaloo as a family cemetery and is the only family cemetery independent from any larger ones in the borough. The last burial took place in 1848.
