Lawrence Cemetery

May 1st, 2013

Once a family picnic ground known as Pine Grove, this little cemetery hard by the LIRR's Port Washington Branch (the steps in the foreground lead up to a pedestrian bridge over the tracks) is the final resting place of several notable members of the Lawrence clan, including Cornelius Van Wyck Lawrence, a former mayor of NYC.

(For the record, this is the second Lawrence Cemetery we've visited in Queens; the first was in Astoria.)
