Washington Cemetery can be seen from this elevated section of the F Train, as well as the yard where subway cars are parked and serviced. Coney Island is home to very large apartment complexes, something you don’t usually see in photos of the summer retreat.
At the top of a hill in the cemetery there are rows of these Skylights for the crypts below. I’m not sure the dead are appreciating the extra light they are receiving, but……as with all burial places, they are probably more for the living than the deceased. I just found these rows of skylights fascinating and even peered down into the one with the broken glass. Design-wise I am not sure what period these skylights were placed there. Guessing early 20th Century…. but????? Green-Wood should be on everyone’s Bucket List.
