Culture on the Cheap
A Very Special Urban Fur: Calvary Cemetery Style!

Today I had the pleasure of taking a lengthy sojourn with the imitable proprietors of Forgotten-NY and The Newtown Pentacle. It was after the first leg of our tour that Mitch Waxman, the author of the former site, took me on a tour of Calvary Cemetery.
And I learned that not all the “residents” therein have two legs!
Per Mitch, Calvary is hoppin’ with these little guys (and gals). We are talking about rabbits after all!
Here’s a little footage I shot of this handsome little fellow. As you will see he is not too big on humans. Living ones, anyway!
Special thanks go out to Mitch for taking the time to show me some of the finer points of Calvary (among other things) today. In closing, I’d like to mention the reason why he and Kevin were taking a walk today: they are in the planning stages for a tour of points Long Island City, Sunnyside and beyond. This will come to pass April 16— so mark your calendars!
P.S.: I will be compiling a slide show of sights— and sounds— from today’s sojourn so check back!
