The New York City Marble Cemetery was founded in 1831, after an epidemic of yellow fever caused concern about normal burials in the earth. One block west is the New York Marble Cemetery founded in 1830, which is entered via an alleyway with iron gates at each end. The funeral home nearby is a four-storey or so high building, on the roof of which is a strange stone or iron (?) owl with apparently cloth or similar wings.
