I visited St. Michael's Cemetery in Astoria this week. And found some windows as well as Cemetery statuary that I liked. Take a look at the two shots below:
St. Michael's Cemetery is situated in the borough of Queens in New York City. Established in 1852, St. Michael's is one of the oldest religious, nonprofit cemeteries in the New York City metropolitan area which is open to people of all faiths. It is owned and operated by St. Michael's Church, an Episcopal congregation located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
This building is at the entrace to the cemetery and it looks abandoned. It was probably the office for making inquiries.
