5. Robert Moses’ Burial Place

Woodlawn Cemetery mauseoleums

Robert Moses died in 1981 at the age of 92 of heart disease. He is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in an outdoor mausoleum along with his wife Mary. The cemetery writes on its website, that Moses is “ironically entombed in a mausoleum not far from the Major Deegan Expressway.” By all accounts, Moses has been fairly quiet since moving into Woodlawn Cemetery!
