Woodlawn Cemetery: Where the Rich and Famous Spend Eternity

Duke Ellington, Herman Melville and other luminaries have tombs with a view in this famous New York City graveyard, located on 400 leafy acres of the Bronx

New York City’s Woodlawn Cemetery is a mini-city of neighborhoods of the dead; The city’s great entrepreneurs are buried near each other, and the plots of jazz greats all share an avenue. Herman Melville’s tombstone commands its own graveyard of manuscripts left by failed writers. But the spookiest graves of Woodlawn are the ones whose names we don’t know, but have spectacular stories to tell. Here’s our favorite inscription:

Lost life by stab in falling on
ink eraser, evading six young
women trying to give him
birthday kisses in office
Metropolitan Life Building

Good news to everyone reading this comment. I want to share my testimony on how i belong to the world famous illuminate fraternity society, and how i have become more famous, by acquiring huge wealth, riches and fame. Here is how my life changed. A friend of mine that was very rich, wealthy, famous and successful. On one beautiful day, he said to me that he is going to help me, that he is going to show me the way to be successful in life. So i was very happy, i never knew he was a member of the great illuminate society. So i was initiated to the world famous illuminate society, and few days later, i was awarded a contract worth millions of Dollars. Right now as i speak, in my business i am doing very well, i travel the world on business deals, i am now the one that help people to become a member of illuminate, before life was so hard for me and my family.
