Brinckerhoff Cemetery

January 27th, 2014

You'd never know by looking at it, but this seemingly undeveloped mid-block lot was once "the burial ground of the rural Flushing township crossroads community of Black Stump". It contains dozens of graves dating back to the colonial era. Check out this aerial image of the cemetery from 1924, when this part of Queens was still all farmland.
