Old historic cemeteries are actually good as long as well taken care of. I don't mind if my house is next to Trinity Church Cemetery. Alexander Hamilton as my neighbor is NOT a bad thing at all. The new cemeteries are the problems. Beware of those half empty ones. It is like going to funeral every week if you live next to it.

Old West Farms Soldier's Cemetery is a spooky place after dark.

Cemeteries can also be a nice buffer from 1980s Brooklyn. Particularly between Glendale and East New York.

Bayside cemetery in Ozone Park use to creep me out at night, people use to hand dead pigeons in bags along the fences over there.

I don't mind cemeteries, other than the fact that they add fifteen minutes to my commute everytime I want to get out of Middle Village

A few years ago, had to take a leak in Crotona Park and there were about 5 or 6 dead crows on the muddy ground. Obviously killed and hidden there. Disgusting.
