Day 12

The Jewish Gate at Trinity Church Cemetery

January 11th, 2012

This label was added just for Ed Koch. Ridiculous!

    Okay….so when he’s buried he must be taken through the Jewish gate only and then his plot will be gated too? Huh? I don’t get it. As Matt says, Ridiculous.

    Oh, I miss you by several days Matt. I was here last Saturday walking along Broadway to check on Peter Woytuk’s sculptures. Took a detour on 155th St to the cemetery and came upon Audubon’s grave near the entrance. Didn’t see that Jewish Gate sign though.

  3. I am totally lost on this one……a Jew would want to be buried at Trinity Church cemetary? They believe in the Trinity and go to church? ….and they need to use the Jewish Gate???? There HAS to be a story behind this one!!

      Click on the highlight of “just for Ed Koch” above in Matt’s comments. It tells the story of it all.
