I was working on my research on Hart Island when I discovered some interesting facts about it that I thought you all should know too. Here goes! So Hart Island is basically New York’s mass burial cemetery. There used to be several known parks in this area including Madison Square Park. One fact that shocked me is that it does not appear on the MTA Maps, and I checked for myself as well! It’s the United State’s major tax-funded cemetery that has several abandoned buildings too. (Now that sounds creepy, I wonder if ghosts live in those buildings). Not many people visit this place as it’s not really open to the public. To my surprise, the first child that died of AIDS is also buried in this cemetery, and most of the area is still not defined properly. I wish to learn more about the place, so please share your thoughts too!
