Cementerio Activo

November 9th, 2013

Trinity Church Cemetery is known as the last active cemetery in Manhattan (although the New York Marble Cemetery, whose last interment was in 1937, still has a policy allowing descendants of the original vault owners to be buried there if they so choose). Trinity is running out of room, however, and "has stopped selling plots, offering burial only in the most 'extraordinary circumstances,' or to people with long-held reservations", but space is still available in aboveground crypts (like those visible in the background of this photo).
