An Autumnal Interlude: The Inimitable Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx

We in New York have been enjoying the last unseasonably warm days of a spectacular autumn. In my opinion, there is simply no better place to enjoy the autumn colors in the area than in the "400 acres of rolling lawns, spectacular trees and impressive memorials" that comprise the epic Woodlawn Cemetery in The Bronx.

You can find out more about this fantastic cemetery--founded in 1863--by clicking here. You can see more photos--all of which I took on a visit my boyfriend and I made last Sunday--by clicking here, and can see larger version by clicking on the images.

Etwa fünf Miuten von meinem Wohnort entfernt, liegt der älteste unberührte Friedhof der Stadt. Momentan ist Herbst und die Stimmung ist genau gleich wie auf den Bildern.
Einfach beeindruckend :-)
