Mount Olivet Cemetery
Time Out says
Mount Olivet Cemetery, named after the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, has been a burial ground in Maspeth since 1850 and used to be a popular weekend destination in the 19th century because of its view of Manhattan. Civil War vets and their wives are buried here (nearby is a Civil War memorial dedicated to "Defenders of the Union") as well as former U.S. Congressman James Maurice, Prince Georges V. Matchabelli, cosmetics entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein, and gangster Jack "Legs" Diamond. The cemetery's gatehouses are pretty enough and tombstones cover its green hills, which are perfect for getting a view of the Manhattan skyline.
