Calvary Cemetery

B and I took a walk many weeks ago to Calvary Cemetery. Actually, Old Calvary Cemetery. The one nearer our house is the New Calvary Cemetery, annexed by the church when they realized that they needed more space.

The Old Calvary Cemetery is really nice, really quiet and calm and there was a nice breeze the day we were there.

New Calvary is pretty terrible. Two highways (the BQE and LIE) intersect New Calvary, and as a result it's just constantly roaring with traffic. It's also on a long piece of flat land, so doesn't have much character. Old Calvary has much more character and is placed on some nice rolling hills.

And of course there is fantastic sculpture, as always. I do enjoy cemeteries, even if that makes me weird.
