[176 names donated for unknown section {10169}] The secretary is very helpful, but requires exact details because of so many unrelated surnames. Interment and care records are computerized. The first interment was in 1915 in this still active cemetery now providing aboveground mausoleum crypts in its Sanctuary. The following travel directions from Brooklyn and Manhattan were taken from a pamphlet on directions to various NYC area cemeteries put out by Gutterman's Funeral Directors: From NYC: Triboro Bridge, Grand Central to Interboro B'klyn, (now called J. Robinson Parkway) to exit on Forest Park Drive. Bear right to light (Myrtle Avenue). Turn left to cemetery. From Brooklyn: Interboro Parkway to Forest Park Drive Exit. Bear left to stop sign and continue under Parkway bridge to Myrtle Ave. Turn left to cemetery. From Queens: Belt Parkway to Woodhaven Blvd (Crossbay Blvd.). Turn right onto Woodhaven Blvd. Continue to Myrtle Avenue, turn left onto Myrtle Avenue. Continue to cemetery. Public transportation: BMT (Canarsie Line) at 14th St to Myrtle Avenue, and then take Richmond Hill Bus 55 to Cemetery. In addition, if coming from the Long Beach/ Far Rockaway/Belle Harbor area, take the Cross Bay Bridge at around Beach 92nd Street in the Rockways. The Cross Bay Bridge becomes Cross Bay Blvd and then later Woodhaven Blvd. Follow Woodhaven Blvd. to the appropriate turn street, either Myrtle Avenue or Jamaica Avenue, depending upon the cemetery being visited.
