Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is an historical, yet active cemetery. Famous burials include Washington Irving, Elizabeth Arden, Andrew Carnegie, and Walter Chrysler.
Take one of the (paid) day/nighttime tours to really get the most out of the experience. Our guide told us more about Washington Irving than we learned at his house/museum at Sunnyside.
