Day 84

Calvary Cemetery

March 23rd, 2012

Somewhere between 1,750,000 and 3,000,000 people have been laid to rest in Calvary, meaning there are more dead folks here than there are living ones in any US city outside of New York and Los Angeles, and maybe Chicago and Houston, depending on the exact number.

Today I was in First Calvary, which is the oldest section of the cemetery. Calvary has expanded over the years, and it now comprises four parcels split up by expressways.
