7. Brinckerhoff Cemetery, Queens

This colonial-era Dutch burial ground in an overgrown lot in Fresh Meadows could have up to 200 people buried here. It was named for the Brinckerhoff family, who arrived in New Netherland in the 1630s. The cemetery was in use by 1730 based on its early gravestone dates. There are at least 76 plots from between 1736 and 1872, including several Brinckerhoff descendants. It stopped actively functioning in the late nineteenth century.
