Welcome to the All Faiths Cemetery Website. The All Faiths Cemetery is located in Central Western Queens and lies between the Long Island Expressway on the North, Maurice Ave. Exit and the Inter-Borough Parkway (Jackie Robinson), Metropolitan Ave. Exit on the South. Just minutes from Mid-town Manhattan, and convenient to Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Southern Connecticut and Central New Jersey we pride ourselves with our community based philosophy that we are here to serve you and the outlying Boroughs of New York City and have done so for over 157 years.
Situated on 225 Acres with 19 miles of roadways, the All Faiths Cemetery is slightly larger than ¼ the size of NYC’s Central Park. We are the final resting place of more than 540,000 New Yorkers, many of which were born during the early beginnings of our country from 1775 to 1797, and of multiple religious denominations. With the majority of today’s interments being of the Catholic Faith, we have established areas dedicated to them from conventional below ground burial to elaborate community mausoleums.
Boasting some of the highest vantage points in Queens County with awe-inspiring views of Manhattan from Wall Street to Mid-town with such Landmark Structures as the Woolworth, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building and the more recently constructed Citicorp Building adds a bit of irony to the History of the Cemetery and its Founder. With additional Southwesterly views of Queens and Brooklyn from various vantage points we figure prominently with NYC Film Production and are listed as a user friendly Filming Location with the Mayors Office of Film Production. We strive on working with students from the NYU Film School and the NY Film Academy as we wish them much success in all their endeavors.
With Old World Charm, Rolling Hills, Panoramic Vistas, over 200,000 pieces of Historic Memorial Architecture and an accommodating staff, it is no wonder that we have been called home to many Television and Film Productions from Rosemary’s Baby to Plan B, Dedication and most recently Watching the Detectives, to NYPD Blue, Now and Again and the Sopranos
