Baseball Field
“About a 15-20min walk from our Airbnb. Great for a run to get some fresh air, or to simply sit and people-watch. Once you’re in the park where there is a baseball field, take the steps up to the main road and cross it to go to another beautiful part of Highland Park. Inside, there is a path along pond/reservoir with beautiful views.”

Cemetery
“The Cemetery of the Evergreens is a non-denominational cemetery in Brooklyn and Queens, New York, colloquially called Evergreen Cemetery. It was incorporated in 1849, not long after the passage of New York's Rural Cemetery Act spurred development of cemeteries outside Manhattan. For a time, it was the busiest cemetery in New York City; in 1929 there were 4,673 interments. The cemetery borders Brooklyn and Queens and covers 225 acres (0.91 km2) of rolling hills and gently sloping meadows. It features several thousand trees and flowering shrubs in a park-like setting. The Evergreens is the final resting place of more than 526,000 people. ”
