Our Bobby Williams happened by the New York City Marble Cemetery again yesterday on East Second Street ... This time, a lone worker was shoveling the lawn... Bobby says he yelled twice to the worker, but the man did not look up... We're just a little curious to learn more what was happening here.
Gothamist got the scoop yesterday. (By calling? Who knew they had a phone at the cemetery...) Cemetery officials say there will soon be a burial there, and crews are preparing the lawn for the ceremony.
I'm fascinated by the history here at this rather crumbling green oasis. (Read more about it here.) You may also search interments listed by vault here.
