From Ink Lake:
Progress continues apace at cleaning up the monument to neglect that is Bayside Cemetery in Ozone Park.
Thanks to CAJAC (Community Association for Jewish At-Risk Cemeteries), new landscapers have been hired, and every weekend volunteers are out there. Usually it’s one or two “regulars”, but sometimes CAJAC is able to rustle up Boy Scout troops, familes of people interred there, or other small groups.
When I first went out there this past summer, the task seemed Sisyphean, it now seems merely Herculean. The key is persistence.
