That's quite a monument. I have visited other cemeteries where they give out maps to the major memorials to the rich and famous.

That is quite a monument indeed! Nothing like the rich and famous -- they go out the same way the lived! Terrific photo! Hope you have a great week, Mary!

How I remember shopping at the Woolworth store in my own hometown. Somehow I feel surprised to see this memorial monument...like people never existed in regards to that store..."reality check needed for me!" This is quite the monument too.

Interesting structure and statuary. Do you know more about this unique building, that is the history/story behind the sculptures etc.?

An Egyptian motif in the afterlife for a very American businessman! You do have some impressive cemetries in NYC area.
