I notice that there aren't many residential buildings across from Greenwood Cemetary and the few that are are either facing away from the cemetary (with their backyards facing the avenue) or situated sideways across from one another (with a narrow corridor inbetween)
Was it considered bad luck to have your home facing the cemetary years ago? I'm wondering if that explains why the houses are placed as they are. Anybody know?
Actually that whole stretch of area from 5th and 25th to about 34th street has mainly factories between 5th and 4th...was it a "bad omen" years ago for anything to be built close to a cemetary?
