This cemetery is located on Queens Av. near 23d St.,

used for a burial place for the unknown dead of that town.

It is now owned by the City of New York and is under the
control of the Board of Charities.

No burials have been made for twelve years but the City
intends to use it for a general potter's field. This movement,
however, is meeting with much opposition from tlie residents
and business men of the vicinity who hold that it is a detriment
to business and real estate values. The outcome of this contro-
versy is as yet unknown.
