Mt. Zion Cemetery Overview

Queens, New York. Mt. Zion is one of the older Jewish cemeteries in New York and unlike newer cemeteries it seems to have the feel of an old Jewish cemetery in Prague or Cracow. With over 200,000 people packed into this relatively small space bordered by a large power plant on one side and the Long Island Expressway on the other, it's a piece of history where time stopped while the rest of New York bustles along in a parallel universe.

 

Note: I have relatives buried here, more on them coming up...
