Review for The Historic Jersey City & Harsimus Cemetery, Jersey City, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Historic Jersey City & Harsimus Cemetery is not only historic for its eternal resting place of so many people, including veterans of wars fought for our nation, but it is also the site of Revolutionary War encampments & was an important stop in the journey of those traveling the Underground Railroad (a tunnel entrance from a crypt leading something like a mile to a safe house!). This Cemetery has been featured as a location in HBO's Sopranos. This cemetery is a holy ground for the community to observe Memorial Day & pay direct tribute to those fallen in U.S. Wars...this Cemetery is a place where nature and the living can come together to celebrate life & history as a venue for music performance and great works, like Shakespeare in the park and cultural events, like Civil War Reenactments. Rare flowers, dating back to early settlement of our nation still thrive in this cemetery, because it is an open space that for centuries was preserved by the urban community that surrounds it. I am thrilled & blessed to live so near this place that begs to be Federally recognized as one of our nations most important spots!.
