I am near the City of the Dead
Categorized in: One Shots
Long Island City near Greenpoint Avenue
near St Michael’s Cemetery looking west
Maybe Maspeth? I see the Triborough Bridge, the BQE, the NYPD Fleet Services Division, the Mt. Zion Cemetery. Looks like a rooftop swimming pool in the foreground.

“I am near the city of the dead”. What is the actual city of the dead? I would think Middle Village or Glendale?
On somebody’s back porch.
I’m sorry, but the term “City of the Dead” has long fallen out of favor, as it’s considered decomposingly incorrect & shows utter contempt for those presently in that state.
The proper term is “Necropolis of Those Who Have Long Since Ceased to Display Vital Signs”.
Please make a note if it.
