Ferncliff Cemetery

As close to an old-school Hollywood cemetery as you’ll find on the East coast.  Ferncliff is relatively small, but does have 3 large mausoleums.  The main one is a dastardly maze of a building with piped-in music that can be a little unsettling at times.  But the staff is friendly and there are plenty of celebs to visit and make a trip worth your while.
