Just found some old pictures I took of Sylvan Cemetery, the Revolutionary War burial ground out on Staten Island. At one point this place was pretty much abandoned. Haven't been there in a couple of years, it was being cleaned up last time I was out there. These shots are from 2008.

Google says that this place has been taken over by the NYC Parks Commission.

Probably a good thing. It was in horrible shape.
