Located twenty-five miles north of New York City, Gate of Heaven Cemetery was established in 1917 as a Roman Catholic burial site. About 3,000 burials a year are performed at this 250-acre cemetery. Notables buried there include: Babe Ruth, James Cagney, Sal Minio, radio star, Fred Allen and former NYC mayor, Jimmy Walker.
Catholic cemeteries always have the best angels.
Bet this was during the 20's when the Egypt craze was in full swing.
