Turns out, a New York City address is highly coveted even after you die. The metropolis’ cemeteries are running out of space for dead New Yorkers to rest in peace, and it’s likely that there will be no earth left by 2022. “There are now 560,000 buried here over 478 acres, so it fills up,” said Jeff Richman, the historian at the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. “We are very much in a situation of a very limited time horizon that we can offer people in-ground burial.” At Cypress Hills Cemetery, also in Brooklyn, workers have been using the space between plots and roadway to squeeze in coffins. Like living New Yorkers looking for low-cost habitable space, the expired may have to start looking to New Jersey for new real estate. Either that or we’re going to have to start building skyscraper-like graveyards. (Photo: Elvert Barnes/Flickr)
