4.  Cemetery of the Evergreens, Brooklyn, Kings County: 526,000 Interments

 With 526,000 interments, Cemetery of the Evergreens is New York City’s fourth largest cemetery. This Brooklyn burial ground stretches over 225 acres and has become the permanent resting place for many historical icons such as tap dancer, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, and jazz musician Lester Young.

However, some of its most interesting tenants were unknown for 100 years. In 2011, six bodies that were unrecognizable after the damage of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire were finally identified. To commemorate these victims, a statue of a kneeling woman was erected and today, it continueds to be one of the Evergreens’ most noteworthy features.
