Cemeteries offer an interesting respite from the bustle of the city, and invite visitors to slow down for a moment to reflect not only on the inspiring and eclectic landscape in front of them, but also to ponder some of the bigger questions about their lives and their notions about eternity. Big ideas that might not be on the typical wish list for a vacation, but which inspire the kind of inspiration and re-invigoration that travelers often cite as goals for their journeys.

The eclectic list of people buried in different cemeteries is a mesmerizing list that ranges from some expected names to some less so. And not surprisingly, the roster of personalities reflects the rich immigration story that so defines the New York experience.
