Danny heads to Green-Wood Cemetery to see where the memorial to him and his family is located. The beautiful setting is along the Sylvan Water lake where many of the city’s wealthiest (often mob related) are interned. Danny is confused as to who continues the maintenance of the site, where there are planted flowers and asks the caretaker who says the family takes care of it.
Green-Wood Cemetery, built as a rural cemetery, was once the second most popular tourist site in New York State state with over 500,000 visitors each year by 1860, second only to Niagara Falls. Today, it is often used for film locations – seen in shows like Daredevil and Gotham.
