From the NY Times:
...New York City...has been trying to sell Canarsie Cemetery in Brooklyn for more than 25 years.
This year, it is trying again. The city’s Department of Citywide Administrative Services issued a request for bids earlier this week, and officials say they hope it will be more fruitful than the last round, which took place in the mid-1990s during the Giuliani administration.
The Canarsie Cemetery, at the corner of Remsen Avenue and Avenue K, was originally owned by the town of Flatlands, which then became part of Brooklyn. When the five boroughs merged in 1898, the ownership passed to New York City, which has handed it off to a veritable alphabet soup of agencies, some of which are defunct.
Hopefully someone will buy it, considering how the City treats the dead...
