Today & Tomorrow

Today, despite the constantly increasing population and a demand for interment space from families throughout the New York City metropolitan area, Cypress Hills Cemetery has a large amount of beautifully developed land sufficient to serve future generations.

The cemetery is located in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, and encompasses 225 acres and is easily reached via the J line at the Cypress Hills station, approximately 45 minutes from Manhattan.
