“Historic Cemetary in NY”

Woodlawn Cemetery is one of the largest cemeteries in New York City and is a designated National Historic Landmark. Located in Woodlawn, Bronx, New York City , it has the character of a rural cemetery. Woodlawn Cemetery opened in 1863, in what was then southern Westchester County, in an area that was later annexed to New York City in 1874. It is notable in part as the final resting place of some great figures in the American arts, such as authors Countee Cullen and Herman Melville, and musicians Irving Berlin,Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, and Max Roach. Out of respect for those who rest here in our care, we strictly limit the type of recreational activities permitted here. You are welcome to take a guided tour of the cemetery or to photograph the grounds. Please read our visitor guidelines for more information.
