Directions via Google Maps

This site honors both the local Flushing community, and the hundreds of people who are buried here. Once a site for active recreation, the site was rediscovered as a pauper's burial ground and rebuilt in 2006 to honor the dead. A reflective memorial area and rolling hills mark a place to remember the 500-1000 Native Americans and African Americans who were laid to rest here until 1898. A playground, placed on a sill system foundation so as not to disturb the land, is accessible from the 165th Street entrance, and offers play equipment for young children.
