Time Out says

Gravesend Cemetery was founded in about 1658 by Lady Deborah Moody, the founder of Gravesend itself. At just under two acres, it has 379 tombstones from between the mid-1700s to the mid- 1900s belonging to early settlers of Brooklyn, Revolutionary War veterans and some say, Lady Moody. You'd recognize some of the names inside like Wyckoff, Dyckman, Van Sicklen, and Stillwell. It's a landmark, but had been in disrepair for some time until in 2019, when New York City Parks Department’s Citywide Monuments Conservation Program began restoration. What you can see of the cemetery is a lot of worn but intriguing tombstones surrounded by green in the warmer months.
