Quite a headstone! He was such a treasure!

I had no idea he was buried in NYC... I would've guessed down in the Delta somewhere.

Still can't make up my mind of the coins are part of the sculpture or real ones left by fans, a la Duane Allman.

That is a beautiful headstone. I too am surprised his final resting place is in NY. Thank you for this wonderful post.

A very iconic headstone...didn't realise he was buried in Queens...why the name Satchmo??

Wow! This is cool. I had no idea he was so close.
