The New York City Cemetery Project documents the history of the city’s graveyards. Hundreds of cemeteries—including small family burial grounds and churchyards, as well as larger cemeteries containing hundreds, thousands, even millions of bodies—have existed throughout the five boroughs since the 17th century. Study of these cemeteries, whether they have been lost in time or are still in existence, provides much regarding the history of this ever-evolving city and its people, and offers some intriguing answers to the question: What does the city do with its dead?

"In my travels, I’ve discovered that graveyards are really very fragile. All it takes is a windstorm or a lightning bolt to do irreparable harm, not to mention the kind of damage a determined teenager can do. Cemeteries are vulnerable because they are not visited. People care about the things they see. My mission is to get people to go. That’s the least I can do for the pleasure cemeteries have given me: inspire and encourage other people to visit for themselves."
