6. Ocean View Cemetery on Staten Island
We passed by the bucolic Ocean View Cemetery on Staten Island recently, which is over a century old. At the entrance is a castle-like house and gate, that leads into this non-denominational cemetery that is the final resting place for over 50,000 people. The architecture, with its facade of large individual stones is reminiscent of Hempstead House in Sands Point, Long Island that was built by Howard Gould and often featured in films locations.
